  • Use ManageWP Orion to clone your wordpress website from an already backed up version you have in place
  • Make sure to use new username and password also when cloning
  • Once Clone is successful go into your newly cloned wordpress website and go to /wp-admin
    • Once logged in use SUBLIME editor for find and replace all to change the URL hard coded from old live website you cloned from to the new temporary site you cloned to. Make sure to update the following 
      • header.php
      • footer.php
      • side-bar.php
    • Might be others too
    • Now make code changes on the newly fixed and cloned site and then when done clone back to live active site in production BUT make sure again to use SUBLIME for find replace all on URL names all.
    • Here are steps following the clone of a project using ManageWP Orion
      • Always as noted above use Sublime and edit and change all URL hard coded items in header and side-bar
      • After clone go into gallery and uploads and get rid of all those chris images to clean up
      • Finally backup using Managewp
