New in SpinupWP: Site Cloning – Staging Sites in Just a Few Clicks
Site cloning allows you to quickly create a complete copy of an existing site on SpinupWP, which includes all files, the database, and server configuration (Nginx and PHP-FPM). Cloning is useful for creating staging sites and for quickly testing server configuration changes. For example, you could test upgrading your site to a newer version of PHP in an isolated manner without impacting your production site.
To clone a site, head over to the site’s settings screen and click ‘Clone Site’ in the top right corner.
This will open the site cloning wizard, where you can configure the new domain, database, and site settings (PHP version, page cache). For git-based sites, you will also be able to select the new branch to check out and modify your deploy script (if required).
