Copied site files to new domain now cannot login (3 posts)

    Hi Folks,

    Avid WP fan here. I am attempting to copy a custom design I made from one domain to another. I simply FTP'd ALL the files from one domain to the other and now I cannot login.

    When I go to wp-admin on site #2 (copy) it takes me to wp-admin on site #1 (original). I do know how to edit sql's and config files so if there is an easy fix to this PLEASE HELP!!

    I was really hoping to copy everything and then just go in and modify the few things that needed to be changed......

    PS - It's my birthday so HELPING ME would be a GREAT GIFT!!! ;-)

    Hello Ms. Chris,

    Happy Birthday! The Moving WordPress article really does cover every possibility, but in this case, you're just basically duplicating the site. This was originally answered here:

    Creating a copy of WordPress install

    They mention a plugin that might make this a whole lot easier too. Check out this one: http://wordpress.org/plugins/duplicator/

    I hope this makes it easier to make that copy!
