please activate the permalinks on the staging site from settings > permalinks
Is this resolving the issue?
I’ve tried that 3 times. It didn’t work. The only one that works is the native ?p=id type but I want to use the slug ones.
What is your webserver, nginx?
In that case please read that link, it will explain how to activate permalinks on nginx:
It’s a client site. I have no idea if they’re running nginx. I’m pretty sure it’s Apache though.
You can see that on wp-staging > tools > system info
It might be easier if you get in contact with me directly at support [at] wp-staging.com
I find a solution for you.
unfortunately I’ve got the same problem, so it would be nice if you could make the solution public here in the support forum.
btw: my site is on a 1&1 shared server (package: unlimited plus)
@mrlovebucket In that particular case it was an issue with the user’s theme which did not allow to enable permalinks on the staging site. The solution was to deactivate permalinks and then to activate them again.
if you contact me to my mail and send me the system info log from wp staging > tools I will likely find a solution to your issue as well.
@renehermi The solution worked for me as well. Now I have several staging sites and all are working like a charm.
Thank you very much
and have a nice day
@mrlovebucket This is great. Thanks for your feedback. If you like to review the plugin you make me a lucky guy:)
Same thing here.
If I switch to ‘Plain’ Permalinks, the site works. If I switch to ‘Post name’ Permalinks, all of the links redirect back to the old site.
I’ve switched a dozen times and still no change. I have another staging site on this server and the permalinks work, I’m not sure why this staging site refuses to update the permalinks.

Disregard. URL Rewrite was enabled on the subfolder in IIS. 🙂 Once I disabled URL Rewrite, the links worked.
