  • Hi!

    You probably used the same database and table prefix while installing WP in the /demo folder.

    Check the wp-config.php in both folders and se if the $table_prefix var is the same on both.

    In any case, deleting files will hardly mess with the database, but backing up everything is always a good measure.


    Thanks for replying!

    Both wp-config.php files have the same thing (they are copies):

    $table_prefix = 'wp_';

    Is that creating the login problem? I have backed up the files, and I’m fine with deleting the new failed clone ‘demo’ folder, as long as I won’t have a problem logging into the ‘old’ site after that. I think I’m no good at manual migration and I will need to find a good plugin to manage it for me.

    Yes, you are basically running the same blog at two different addresses. Deleting the files won’t hurt your database, I’m pretty sure you can safely delete the failed clone folder.

    Manual migrations are, well, manual. It takes a little work, but they are not impossible. Practice a little more and you will be acing it in no time!

    Good luck!

    I deleted the dreaded file and….everything’s fine. Now back to practicing migration! Thank you very much for your help! 🙂
