Your clone facility for Wordpress is excellent but it would be really great to be able to provide a facility to copy the Wordpress site to another domain name (ie for testing ) and at the same time fixing up all the database issues that such a move gives.
The cloning does a lot of this but taking it a bit further so that you can create a backup that Softaculous on another site can import would be very good. (I find that none of the plugins out there have worked for me).
Cloning is fine but suffers from inheriting some of the issues raised from the production site (eg caching which would be nice to remove from a test system)
