XCloner - Backup and Restore
Xcloner clone to localhost problems (4 posts)

    I have tried to clone a site hosted on mediatemple(gs) to a localhost.
    I downloaded the clone and used ftp to put the tar.php and xcloner.php files into a localhost directory, and created an empty database with phpmyadmin...

    When I try to access http://localhost/mysite/xcloner.php the browser tries to download the xcloner.php file and does not start the restore process.

    Any idea what is going wrong?

    The issue is probably from your server setup, are you able to run any php other php scripts? Make sure your local server is configured to execute php code!

    Yes, I'm running other sites on my local server that are executing PHP without a problem. There seems to be something up with this particular site.

    I'm wondering if you've seen an issue like this before...

    It actually happens when I try to use another backup plugin too.

    Any input would be appreciated...

    Thanks again.

    Do you have any .htaccess file inside that folder? if so, try and delete it and see how it goes... Also, make sure you call the script by it's correct casing name XCloner.php and not xcloner.php
