If you’ve already got WPSiteSync installed, you simply need to run the update from your WordPress Dashboard. However, if you’ve never used it and want to give it a try, feel free to download it from the WordPress repo for free. With WPSiteSync, synchronizing content between two sites has never been easier and contributes to the most efficient workflow possible.
