One click to create sandbox copy?

    I’d like to get a script or plugin that copies my live site, say http://www.mywpsite.com to second local sandbox instance sandbox.mywpsite.com.

    What we’re trying to do is give freelance developers access to a sandbox copy that is overwritten weekly or upon a manual click from within the WP-admin interface. This way we don’t have freelancers modifying the live site or with password access to our live size/directories etc.

    The new site would live in an adjacent directory on our server. For example, live site is in /home/www/livesite and the sandbox copy is in /home/www/sandboxsite. Database and admin passwords would need to be different than the live site.

    We’d like the process/script/plugin to modify robots.txt to block search engines, and to possibly have .htaccess password protection, but these are “nice to have”.

    This could be done with a shell script that pipes the database SQL file and php files through sed for replacements, but it’d be nice if there is a plugin solution for this.

    Thanks for help,

    -Michael
