I usually use wp clone wordpress plugin which basiclaly zipped the database and folder of wordpress to upload to a new install of wordpress. I can't use it however on a bridal woocommerce website. It tries then eventually gives me a 404 page not found error. The is has about 2000 uploaded images and everything. I know there is a programm called "WP-DB-Backup" but I think it only backs the databse and then I guess I owuld have to manually relink it to new host with wordpress installed? Not really sure. Any help would be greatly appreciated it.
