Copy website to use it as a template for a new site
I would like to clone a website for the purpose of using it as as a template for a new, completely different website, so in the process of copying, I need the info in the database to all be changed to refer to the new domain, with no connection at all to the original site. The copy is to be a starting point for a new website, and all the content will be changed. I’m surprised that none of the tutorials I see talk about using it for this purpose, as I would think this is a very common use. All the tutorials I find are about cloning for the purpose of testing new code or designs, and for replacing the original site in the end, but this is not at all what i want to use it for. I’m making a whole different website with the copy. Sorry if I’m over-explaining, but it seems like there is very little about this usage, so I’m trying to be clear about the difference. Could anyone please point me to instructions for doing exactly this? Thank you for your help!
