How to Cloning a Site within Installatron?

Last modified: Monday November 14th, 2022


This article describes how to quickly and easily move an installation to a different URL. A lot of folks get tricked into thinking they can just move the files to a new folder and it will work, but, in fact, WordPress stores URLs in a database that will break your site if you just move the files around. A much easier way to move a site to a new location is by using the Clone Tool in Installatron.

To clone a website in Installatron, follow the guideline:

  1. Log in to cPanel.
  2. In the Software section press on the Installatron Applications Installer.  How to Cloning a Site within Installatron? installatro applications installer

  4. Select a location to install the cloned site. Installatron will read the existing install and prompt you to choose a location for the new copy. If you’ve set up a subdomain ahead of time you can choose it from the dropdown menu for the domain, alternatively, you could put it in a subfolder by filling out the “Directory (Optional)” field.

To Cloning Between Two Beehosting Accounts, follow the guideline:

If you would like to move content between two Beehosting accounts (or two different cPanels), you will use the “import” tool through the specific application you would like to clone.

Importing applications is not limited to applications that are already on our server. Assuming you have FTP information for a previous host you can actually import those installs too!

  1. Log in to cPanel.
  2. In the Software section press on the Installatron Applications Installer.  How to Cloning a Site within Installatron? installatro applications installer

  4. Once you’ve found the application you want to import, instead of clicking the “install this application” button you’re going to click the dropdown beside it and choose import existing install. How to Cloning a Site within Installatron? import existing install installatron

  6. Fill in Installatron FTP (File Transfer Protocol) credentials to your old hosting account so it can migrate the information.
