Create a Staging Site from WordPress Dashboard

You are here:


A staging environment for a website is a productive environment used to test changes on a website that closely resembles the live environment. It is crucial to have a staging environment to test the functionality of the website before making it live. Managing a live website can be risky as it may lead to website downtime caused by plugin malfunctions, page crashes, or broken code. In such cases, a duplicate website can be used for testing and making changes in an environment that is completely hidden from visitors. A WordPress staging website is an offline copy of your website. You can easily clone your website using the WordPress plugin WP Staging.
