After a WordPress Site Clone, Inner Pages Don't Load or Show a 404 Error

When you clone a WordPress site, there are many aspect that can affect the site moving to a new location.

One of these is the WordPress internal linking system - "Permalinks".

When you use Permalinks on a site that you clone, normally you will be required to reset the WordPress permalinks system.

To do this:

  1. Log into the admin of your new cloned website.
  2. Browse to the Permalinks section (it's under the Settings menu).
  3. Select the Permalinks structure you want for your site.
  4. Click the 'Save Changes' button.

Your cloned site should now load inner pages once again.

Note: When you add your site to iControlWP following a clone, we will automatically perform this action for you.
