I have an interesting issue.
Ive been making sites based on a master ‘clone’ installation, all has been working fine, and I can turn-out the installs in a few minute.
My issue is this;
When i clone the site from – dev.mydomain.com – to its new home – http://www.someothersite.com – all works well. No issues.
However, I have a demo area – demo.mydomain.com – and I went through the same process to clone the site into this location. And this it where it falls apart.
I have checked the database and done a replace on the old URL string – all is well. But the new site – which copies perfectly – still has all internal links pointing to the old domain.
Does anyone know of a specific issue with non-www prefxed site URL’s ?
Again, this works fine so long as the new URL has a www. prefix..
Is it a Permalinks issue ?
Can I force the Permalinks to refresh without using the wp-admin UI ?
