Copy (clone) one of my wordpress sites to a new domain
I am attempting to copy one of my wordpress domains to a new URL that i currently own and is on my server.
Example: I have my first site, ABC.com (that talks about cars) and I want to make a new site with the same exact format, styling, etc but different text and graphic content on XYZ.com (which will talk about boats).
What I have been doing the following steps on my server as follows:
1) Deleting any files I have in my new domain (XYZ.com)
2) Copying all of the files from the original domain (ABC.com) and pasting them into into the new domain’s (XYZ.com) file manager
When I go to XYZ.com, I now see ABC.com’s page perfectly (which is good). However when I go to alter the new domain’s (XYZ.com) contents by going to XYZ.com/wp-admin, I get redirected to ABC.com’s admin page with this address in the url bar: “http://ABC.com/wp-login.php?redirect_to=http%3A%2F%2FXYZ.com%2Fwp-admin%2F”
Could anyone tell me if (1) My first two steps are correct? (2) If so, how do I get to the correct wp-admin of the new domain in order to alter the new domain’s contents?
Thank you for your help 🙂
