[Resolved] Duplicating to a subdir with a similar name.

  • I tried to duplicate a site to another subdir with a similar name so that I could experiment.

    Source: xyz.com/tbs
    Destination: xyz.com/tbs01

    and now I cannot access the new site because the URLs generated are incorrect (http://xyz.com/tbs0101/…).

    I think this is caused by the two search and replacements done by the installer.php process (but I could be wrong). If I look in installer-log.txt I see
    ————————————–
    GLOBAL DB-REPLACE
    ————————————–
    SEARCH1: ‘http://xyz.com/tbs’
    REPLACE1: ‘http://xyz.com/tbs01’
    SEARCH2: ‘/home/xyz/public_html/tbs/’
    REPLACE2: ‘/home/xyz/public_html/tbs01/’
    SCANNED: Tables:12 | Rows:2330 | Cells:14702
    UPDATED: Tables:1 | Rows:255 |Cells:276
    ERRORS: 0
    RUNTIME: 1.004200 sec

    Does the second replace cause a second “01” to be added?

    It shouldn’t create a “01”. Did that happen when the directory was copied? Not 100% sure what the issue is to be honest. What version of the plugin are you using?

    How to quickly duplicate the problem:

    1. Create a WP site in a sub-directory.
    E.g. http://xyz.com/abc/

    2. Install and run Duplicator to create a package.

    3. Duplicate the website in another sub-directory.
    – Create another subdir with similar name ( e.g. http://xyz.com/abc01/ )
    – Copy the Installer and Package files to the new sub-dir.
    – Run the Installer program

    Old Settings
    URL: http://xyz.com/abc
    Path: /home/xyz/public_html/abc/

    New Settings
    URL: http://xyz.com/abc01/
    Path: /home/xyz/public_html/abc01/
    Title: My Duplicate WordPress Website

    4. Once completed click on the link for “Resave Permalinks”.
    – URL of the link:
    http://xyz.com/tbs01/wp-admin/options-permalink.php

    – URL shown in browser after clicking on the link:
    http://xyz.com/abc0101/wp-login.php?redirect_to=http

    Note that the sub-dir is now abc0101

    5. Another sign.
    – Click the link “Test Entire Site” and see a page without any formatting.
    – Examine the page’s HTML source and look at the links, they show “abc0101”.
    – For example:
    <link rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" media="all" href="http://xyz.com/abc0101/wp-content/themes/twentyeleven/style.css" />

    P.S. I’m using version 0.4.2 of the plugin, the latest on WP.org

    I’m experiencing the same issue so if your site was in a folder /site/
    and you want to duplicate it to the folder /siteduplicate/

    What happens is during the find and replace process, it seems like it’s looping through twice.

    It goes and replaces /site/ with /siteduplicate/ then it replaces /siteduplicate/ with /siteduplicateduplicate/

    If you have a folder with a different name completely it seems to work.

    However I have an issue here, I am about to send this off to a client to install and right now I have it set up as so –

    http://www.mydomain.com/client/

    and it will be getting installed to http://www.client.com

    So the question is, will the find and replace f this all up with the folder name being in the domain name? I don’t know, I duplicated the site already to a new folder that doesn’t have any part of the client domain in it, so this should be a good workaround but there is still some bug in here that needs to be fixed.
