  2. Save Package: Click the Download button on the row associated with the package you built in step 1 and click the “Archive” option to save the installer.php and archive to your local PC.
  3. Install Plugin: Install the Duplicator Pro plugin just like you did on the source site (Plugins > Add New > Upload then Activate)
  4. Upload Archive: Go to Duplicator Pro > Import > Drag the archive you downloaded on step 2 to the import area of the destination site to start the upload process and review archive details.
  5. Recovery Point: Set an optional (see above) if needed.
  6. Launch Installer: Launch the installer and continue through the wizard screens.
