Support » Fixing WordPress » Duplicate WordPress Site on Same Server

  • Resolved allanlud


    Hi all,

    I am working on a WordPress site for a company. Recently the admin from the company cannot log into the Dashboard – when going to this URL ‘’ it gets redirected to this ‘’.

    I have searched for answers on this and the most common reply was to either rename the plug-ins folder or uninstall plug-ins and reinstall to see which one is causing this issue.

    Point to note is that the website is working fine, just the login url is broken

    So what I am trying to do is create a duplicate version of the site in a subfolder to test any possible solutions without affecting the live site.

    So far I have taken down a copy of all the WordPress files from the server, created a new database and imported a copy of the live site database to the new database (I don’t have access to phpMyAdmin so I talked through it over the phone with the company’s IT guy).

    I have read through this – and I am just wondering if these steps will be the same for creating a duplicate copy of the site. Where it says edit the WordPress address and Site Address in the control panel – will I have to do this in phpMyAdmin before I can upload files and get the duplicate version up and running.

    Hope this makes sense.
