Support » Plugin: XCloner - Backup and Restore » Can not restore anymore

  • Previously, it was easy to restore my site with XC script and backup file. Beginning with version XC 4.0.4, it’s changed. Now you can no longer restore your site to an empty web-server. You need a working WP first (!?). The scripts that are to be copied are not complete and the documentation is incorrect.

  • To restore your backup to an empty webserver, you simply need to download the restore script provided on the XCloner Restore backup page, as shown at step 2., text:

    “If you want to do a Remote Target System Restore, please download the restore script from here”

    and then simply supply the restore script url in the provided box and follow the restore procedure

    The restore procedure did change a little bit, but your statement unfortunately is not true.

    Good luck!

    Just upload and run the script ‘xcloner_restore.php’ to my empty webserver was probably not enough, since it gave different “Error 40x” After trying many other methods from multiple forums, I decided to resume my own old manual ftp/sql script for backup/restore instead.

    Thank you, however, for your quick response.

    @zebull, the following instructions worked for me. Just thought of sharing.

    Kind regards
