I first heard about DesktopServer at Wordcamp Phoenix after developing on a live site and paying dearly for my mistakes for several months. Moving WordPress was always a painful experience that involved some tricks and patience. I opted for the premium package because I liked how the application interfaced nicely with the Duplicator plugin and BackupBuddy.
The first site that I cloned was a very complex and included WordPress Multisite and Buddypress. I thought for sure that DesktopServer would give me a white screen of death or a nasty 404 error. Nope! DesktopServer set up a local instance of my site exactly as it looked live on my computer and I was left contemplating “That’s it? No hassles?”
Thank you ServerPress for letting me focus on customer service with my clients and not be caught in the weeds with a site staging and deploy.
