Hi — I am trying to transfer our site host from Google Cloud to Siteground, so I set up a copy of our site on Siteground under the domain weareowa.com. Our original site is outdoorwomensalliance.com. I wanted to test things before committing to the copy on Siteground, so we currently have both sites running (you can think of the Siteground-hosted site, weareowa.com, as our "Staging" site). The copy was transferred over yesterday to Siteground successfully. However, because it was an exact replica of our original site, a number of files — which are hosted through WPMU's tools, from what the support agents saw in the files — are still pointing to outdoorwomensalliance.com instead of weareowa.com, which is causing significant load times. Because I want to test which host environment is best between the two, I need for WPMU not to point to the original site, but to have it point to weareowa.com files/CSS/etc. I'm not sure I'm explaining this precisely right, but I'm hoping the following makes sense from the Siteground tech support guys:

The website weareowa.com is loading slow because more than 150 css/js files on the landing page are loading with error 403 from a third party CDN service. It seems that the CDN is also domain dependent as the files can load from
But not from:
That is something we have no control over and you need to consult with WPMUDEV as these resources are loading from them.
These css files do not exist on your file system so the CDN cannot be simply disabled. You need to configure the application to load these resources from the external CDN without the 403 error message. Please check the settings of this CDN and make sure to update the URL to weareowa.com.
The website will load slow due to the large number of 403 errors generated by the CDN.

How do we fix this? Thank you!
