Support » Plugin: WP Staging - DB & File Duplicator & Migration » Cannot login to staging, tried everything in sticky

  • Resolved krko



    First allow me to congratulate you on a very nice plugin. I have a question though I’d love if you could help me with.

    I can create a staging website. However, once it’s created I cannot login into it. No matter what I do I cannot login into staging.

    I tried the following:

    – Disable Wordfence and two factor authentication plugin before clone
    – Disable Wordfence and two factor authentication plugin after clone via FTP
    – Exclude these plugins from clone
    – Exclude cache from clone

    I’m using the latest version of wp staging.

    Here’s the log file:

    – What error message you get when trying to login?
    – What is happening exactely when trying to login?
    – Enable the wordpress debug mode for your staging site and try again. Any error messages?

    Do you have any plugin which is redirecting or hiding the default login page?

    Please also read this here:


    I’m not getting any error message. If wordfence and tfa plugins are enabled I’m logged into the main site. If they’re disabled I’m greeted back with the login page.

    How would I enable debug on staging? Download config via ftp and add debug on option?

    I don’t have any redirect or hiding plugin for login page.



    I don’t know if this is the correct way to do this, but I connected to staging via FTP and added define( ‘WP_DEBUG’, true ); to wp-config. I’m not getting any errors. I tried adding define( ‘WP_DEBUG’, true ); to main site as well. Still no go. I also tried disabling wordfence and tfa plugins from main site. I’m still not able to login.

    Does that log file I attached above reveal any clues?
