Support » Plugin: Duplicator - WordPress Migration & Backup Plugin » migration successful! wp-admin not accessible anymore…

  • Resolved sghoepfner


    Hi There,
    I am so happy I went though the whole process of updating my site offline and then successfully updating it to online just after my second try (first I missed some important steps with database export).
    But then, now, my wp-admin page is not acessible anymore, I get a blank page.
    I have read other posts, but it seems people are getting the website blank page. My case website is all fine, with new version perfectly deployed, only I cannot get to wordpress admin anymore!
    Any tips what must be wrong and fixed in order to get my back-end working?
    Thanks I have spent hours trying and nothing…

    Hey @sghoepfner,

    Thanks for the feedback! There are a few items on the FAQ that may provide a solution with this issue, this one may get you going.

        – Why are some of my plugins/images/links not updating?

    Try the option under “Safety Switches” to see if that works

    Let me know if any of them help~

    Hi Cory, yes Duplicator is no doubt a great solution, considering I am a complete beginner I was able myself to do a complete revamp of my friend’s website offline at localhost and succesfully migrate it, now live and almost the way I wanted 😉

    I am not so sure how the issues described on the link sent relate to my wp-admin blank page, since as I said, no plugin seems to be the root of the issue (I have renamed plugin folder in order to deactivate them via ftp and nothing happened, wp-admin still blank).

    I will try to read carefully the whole thing on the link you sent. One thing I remember is that after successfully migrating, that page where I had ‘permalinks’, test, clean, etc. I remember I clicked on them but nothing happened.
    Because I saw the site was newly updated, I just assumed nothing happening was a good sign and closed down that page. I have no idea how to go back to that point on duplicator process, since it has been finished.
    I will keep on trying to figure our how to regain access to wp-admin, and I will surely post back any results…
    My intuition says it is something to do with wordpress not finding the user, or there is something redirecting the admin page, but I have no idea where to go.

    Hi Soraya,

    The info you want to pay attention to from the FAQ is the option to disable all plugins at install time. By disabling all the plugins you can rule-out any plugin conflicts, there is also an option to extend the search and replace as well that you should check. This solution has helped others in the past with similar issues…
