We are a Inmotion hosting client and have been for years. Inmotion does a good job and we plan to stay with them. We have used BoldGrid with good success. We want to up our BoldGrid website and after reading an article of a great design that deployed for a client I learned that Inmotion disbanded their web design team due to lack of business. Not what I wanted to hear. I have the URL of the website, also an Inmotion client using BoldGrid. I have two questions:
1/ is there any way that I can copy the BoldGrid themed website externally and copy it into our inmotion boldgrid client for modification?
2/ as another means I plan to contact the website owner, now that Inmotion has disbanded their web design team he will find himself in the same situation as I do. A good hosting company, a good development tool (BoldGrid), but little external funded support. If we can come to some form of agreement what files will I need to ask for in order that we have a copy of their Boldgrid website, place it into our staging area and modify the wording and images for our website?

Thanks so much for reaching out and thank you for hosting with our premium partner InMotionHosting!
We make WordPress to WordPress transfers really simple with our Total Upkeep backups and migrations plugin. All you need to do is have Total Upkeep installed and activated on both WordPress sites and take a backup of the original website using the plugin which you can then transfer to the new instance.
There a few different ways to complete a transfer with Total Upkeep. The recommended way is to create a magic link and download the backup directly into the destination site.
If, for some reason, you cannot use the Download Link option to transfer your backup from the previous server to the new one then the best way to migrate that backup is to directly upload your backup file to the new location.
The first step is to download the backup from Total Upkeep to your local machine. After downloading the backup, open up the WordPress dashboard for your new website and navigate to Total Upkeep > Backup Archives.
Once you have the Backup Archives opened click the Upload Backup button. You should then see two options to upload your backup, the Download Link option at the top and the File from Local Computer on the bottom. Use the Local file option and select the backup archive file you downloaded previously to upload it to your website. You should now see the Backup listed in your archives on the new website, ready to be restored.
For the second half of your question if you would like to create an exact instance of the website you would need a copy of all files as well as the full database stored locally or on some type of web server.
I hope this helps! Please let us know if you have any other questions for us.
