    Obvious newbie here, please and thank you in advance. I'm sure that this has been answered somewhere but I have been trying for weeks now.

    I wish to copy the entire content of an installation from one domain to another BUT have the two installations function completely independently of one another once that is done.

    I have succeeded in making the clone. The original is sgnews.ca and the clone is test.understandingcomputers.ca

    However, there is only one Dashboard, sgnews.ca. Further, visiting the URL test.understandingcomputers.ca just redirects the user to sgnews.ca

    I have created a separate mysql database on the clone site and edited the wp-config.php to reflect that change. Both sites are with the same host but neither is a sub domain of the other.

    I wish to sever one from the other.

    What have I missed?

    Thank you for this.

    I knew that somewhere a mind much more versed than my own had developed a solution. I am thrilled to have attracted the attention of a mod.

    I have installed the plugin. The next challenge, apparently, is to become a superuser.

    In my quest to separate the two sites, I carefully removed all traces of multisite installation. Logic would suggest that I must go back and enable multisite if I am to become a superuser.

    I will try this, now. Thanks again.

    PS, last time I enabled multi site, I created considerable havoc when I deactivated and reactivated my plug ins. Is there any avoiding this?

  5. Not that I know of :/
