Dude stop spreading lies across the forum.
ok.. so if we haven't been hacked, Why is the Migration not working?
Can someone please explain why i have tried several attempts and still cannot clone my site.
There are to may reasons for which the automated migration process can failed, maybe that is why nobody is quick to give you a definitive answer, but if you have try a few times and you see that the process does not complete why don't you try a migration plugin like this
or pick another from here
I hope this will help you.
Likely best to provide a bit more information.
Usual migration path is to make a backup, then restore the backup somewhere.
I've been using Duplicator recently for backups, because it works pretty much every time.
If you're seeing 500 errors, likely you'll have to move one or more plugins out of the way.
I usually to this at the command line + you can do it with FTP also.
1) turn on WP_DEBUG
2) take whatever site action is required to generate the 500 error
3) download your wp.debug log + look for Fatal errors
4) Once you find the offending plugin, create a directory called wp-content/plugins-aside + using FTP or mv (on command line), cd to wp-content + move the offending plugin directory from plugins to plugins-aside, so plugin never executes.
Some weeks I migrate 100s of sites. This little trick keeps migrations smooth.
I can appreciate that this post is old, but I am running into the same issues as the people posting here. I have tried to use both All In One Migration and Duplicator to deploy my client's website. And to be clear I have tried with my other clients in the past who have hosted with you to deploy and ended up moving the website to another hosting company.
Even though we have:
Fresh Wordpress installs AND a day later...
I still can't deploy the site using either plugin. It has been recommended that I manually migrate the site.... Are you kidding me?
A solution would be appreciated.
Sorry to hear that you're experiencing issues! Sounds very frustrating.

Take care and I hope you get this resolved asap. It would be great if you would come back and share with all of us what was causing the issue and what fix was put in place.
This is how I best solve this issue also - stay as far away from GoDaddy Hosting as possible solves this problem best. I have done all the above also. None of the usual migration plugins work with "Managed" WP Hosting. Really? A 100% manual transfer or pay GoDaddy $100. is the options given after 1 .5 days of troubleshooting! What is this 1997? There are FAR BETTER hosting options out there.
