    With all the testing and resetting I do, it is a pain to have to configure everything over and over again. Would you happen to know of a plugin or a manual way to save and restore Woocommerce settings?

    Hello, @thehawkman,

    Yes, you can save and restore WooCommerce settings in WordPress using different plugins. Here are a few of them:

    1. WP All Export and WP All Import Plugins: These plugins allow you to export and import various data, including WooCommerce settings.

    Install and activate the WP All Export and WP All Import plugins.
    Create an export file for WooCommerce settings using WP All Export.
    Use WP All Import to import the settings on the new WordPress site.

    2. UpdraftPlus Backup Plugin: UpdraftPlus is a popular backup plugin for WordPress that can also be used to save and restore your WooCommerce settings.

    Install and activate the UpdraftPlus plugin.
    Go to Settings > UpdraftPlus Backups.
    Create a backup of your website, including settings.
    Restore the backup on your new or existing WordPress site.

    3. Manual Backup and Restore:

    For a manual approach, you can access your WordPress database and export the WooCommerce settings table (wp_woocommerce_settings) using tools like phpMyAdmin.
    Import the table into the database of your new WordPress site using the same method.

    Please note that you should have to try those plugins at your own risk and when restoring settings to a different WordPress installation, you should be cautious and ensure compatibility between the versions of WordPress and WooCommerce.

    Additionally, always perform backups before making significant changes to your site’s settings or database.
