Staging Sites using Clone Tool

Have a Staging Site is a great way to have a development site from which you can easily sync your changes to a production main site. You can create a staging site using the Clone Tool in Installatron > My Apps. Follow the steps below to create a staging site:

1. Create a subdomain for the new staging site. For instance: staging.myexamplesite.com. Or create a development url like mystaging.reclaim.hosting. See Development URLs

2. Next, click the clone button next to the application install that you want to copy.

3. Under Destination > Domain, select your newly created subdomain. This tells installatron where to copy the new staging site. You'll also want to check the box next to Create a Staging Site.
