Support » Plugin: Duplicator - WordPress Migration Plugin » Clone in a new folder on same server

  • Resolved sblooom



    I want to clone my website on the same server but in a new folder to work on the website updates and new version, making sure everything works fine before publishing this new version.

    I only have one database within OVH, so I was thinking of storing the info in new prefixes for this clone so it doesn’t overwrite my actual official website database. But it doesn’t seem possible to do so with duplicator ?

    Hey @sblooom,

    The free version does not currently have support for prefix changes. Typically sharing a database is not encouraged, but it is possible. Does OVH have a plan that will allow more than one database? Almost all hosts we work with allow more than just one database…

    Thanks for your reply. I managed to find the right solution since it is not about a normal migration but more of a testing clone. I used the plugin WP STAGING allowing my to make a test clone in a subdirectory before make it live (which actually use the same db with other prefix).
