Support » Fixing WordPress » Duplicating my WordPress redirects my backup admin to the original admin
6 years, 6 months ago
I have made a backup of my wordpress and database and installed on another domain and server for testing purposes.
live site: http://www.livesite/liveblog
test site: http://www.testsite/testblog
When I go to my test site url http://www.testsite/testblog/wp-admin or http://www.testsite/testblog/wp-login.php and i enter my username and password and click the login button I get redirected to the admin panel of the live site http://www.livesite/liveblog/wp-admin. I have done this with another site and it worked for me but I just cant get it to work on this one.
If anyone knows how to make it go to the admin panel of the testing site please let me know, I’ve been trying for days and I know it has to work. If there’s a setting I need to change someone please let me know. Thanks in advance.
are you sure both url’s point correctly?
do one of these to make sure

I figured it out, I had to update tho entries on the database in the wp-options table. Update the “Site URL” and the “Home” entries to the location of the testing blog.
Thanks guys, thats exactly what I did; changed those entries in phpmyadmin.
