    Advice How to copy a wordpress site without the posts.

    Hi guys, I've got a custom wordpress site that I would like to clone and move to a different domain. The current site over 2000 posts and I would rather not copy all this data over as its not needed.

    Could someone please explain how I can do this. I would need the theme and plugins working on a new server with a black db.

    Many thanks,

    Devs.

    Yes mate, tried everything now. Any decent backup plugs plus cpanel etc. Just paid someone a fiver on fiverr.com so see how they get on with it!
