In the first half of this Watch Me Work live stream we look at how to duplicate a Joomla site on a server and also how to move a Joomla website to a different server. The second of half of this stream is simple, stupid fun we often end up having on the live streams!


- The video is a "Watch Me Work Live Stream 009" on YouTube about copying or moving a Joomla site.
- The presenter, Tim Davis, explains how to duplicate a Joomla site for major upgrades, like going from Joomla 2.5 to Joomla 3.
- Tim emphasizes the importance of making a duplicate site for testing to avoid damaging the live site.
- He demonstrates the process of copying files and duplicating the database on the same server.
- Tim suggests creating a subdomain for the duplicate site rather than nesting Joomla sites.
- He shows how to update the file paths and the database setup.
- Tim reminds viewers to have a backup of the site before proceeding.
- He exports the database tables using phpMyAdmin, mentioning that large databases may take time to export.
- The video includes an interruption regarding a legal case, which is resolved positively.
- Tim discusses choosing tables to export and downloading the SQL backup file.
- He prepares to create a new database for importing the backup.

Note: The transcript is quite lengthy, and the summary includes the major steps and important points covered in the video.
