Creating a clone or staging site from a backup
There are several options for making copies of your sites. This guide covers cloning from a site backup - making a completely separate copy of a site that'll run on a different URL.
Visit Backups from the left hand menu and then click the Details button for the backup from which you'd like to create the clone.
Click the Create a staging site or clone from this backup link.
Enter the required detail:
Please choose a name for your cloned site? - Give the site a suitable name
Please choose a subdomain for your cloned site? - this will appear at the start of your new sites URL
Would you like to restrict access to this clone? - choose either No - Make the cloned site public or Yes - Require a password to view the site.
Would you like to clone to a new site? - choose either No - clone to staging or Yes - Clone to a brand new site
Click Create from backup when you've entered all the details and you new cloned site will be created.
We have a separate guide on accessing and working with your staging sites.
