    do you have any caching or login plugin running?
    This should be excluded from cloning process to ensure that no redirect is returning you to the live site after trying to login.
    You should also not enable the permalinks on the live site.

    Is this all done?

    same here. i already disabled permalinks, and caching & security plugins before i created the staging site. it would be great if we can choose not to protect the staging site at all.

    This is possible by using the pro version of the plugin. It has an option to enable access for guest visitors.

    Beside of that, there could be a redirect in the htaccess of your site. So you could check this as well.

    Ah.. i see. I thought it’s the other way around, Pro allows you to restrict the access. Okay then. My bad.

    I have the same issue – but I don’t want to buy the PRO version – I haven’t even got the free one working yet to evaluate!

    How do I get around this ? I don’t see any redirect in the .htaccess file.

    I did get in once… But then….when I click to look at my ‘event’ which is basically my shop, it says error 404.
