Support » Plugin: Duplicator - WordPress Migration Plugin » Unsuccessful move

  • Resolved David


    I want to use duplicator to move a site from my dev server at home to production at Godaddy. I have set up two virtual machines at home to test.

    I moved the site from one server at to another at I have snapshots, so I can keep trying until I get things to work.

    Installer.php runs fine without error. However, the page is broken and I am not sure where to start. Part of what I am seeing is that all formatting is gone and the menu is presented as a simple list of links down the left side. The links contain the replaced url twice =

    Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

    Nevermind. just needed to fix two lines in the wp-config.php. Looked so bad and was so easy to fix. 🙂

    Hey David,

    Can you provide what two lines you tweaked, just in-case someone else runs into the same issue?




    Sure, It was these two.

    define(‘WP_SITEURL’, ‘http://’.$_SERVER[‘HTTP_HOST’]);
    define(‘WP_HOME’, ‘http://’.$_SERVER[‘HTTP_HOST’]);

    That is the way they should look. After the “duplication” these contained the IP address and also the variable. So, this created the duplicate IP shown in the post above.

    I believe this is what it looked like before correction:
    define(‘WP_SITEURL’, ‘’.$_SERVER[‘HTTP_HOST’]);

    Thanks David! I’ll have to look into a better parser for these variables as the regular expression I’m using doesn’t support this case. However I have added those variables to the final report as a reminder to go check them. The update is now in the hotfix line here:

    -> Browse to
    -> Look for the section “Other Versions”
    -> Click on “Development Version” and download the zip plugin file
    -> Uninstall your current version and install this one
