Support » Plugin: WP STAGING - DB & File Duplicator & Migration » Is this plugin reliable with larger sites?

    Hello,

    I want to say that I am excited at the prospect of being able to have a staging site to test out plugin updates without breaking the live site.
    I was brought on as a web technician for a technical college’s WordPress site. I did not have much experience working in a WordPress or PHP environment before working here so I am being very careful when updating or changing anything on the site for fear of it going down.
    The site has a very large media library and what seems to me to be a large number of pages and posts. The first staging site I tried to create took probably over 5 or 6 hours to complete, and when I came back to it and tried to open the staging site from the WordPress dashboard, I was given a 500 Internal Server Error.
    I’m wondering if something may have gone wrong with the copying process or maybe the site is too big and could not be saved entirely.

    Like I said, I’m pretty new to this kind of work environment so I’m not sure what kinds of things can cause errors like this. Any words of advice would be greatly appreciated.

    Hi,

    Please try out the beta version from https://wp-staging.com/beta.php it’s more reliable in handling larger installations.

    Also try to exclude backup files and other large files which are not needed on the staging site. Any security plugin and redirect must be disabled as well.
