Hi there, I am trying to migrate my live site to a test site using snapshot. I have successfully copied the site on snapshot, moved it to my google drive, then download it to my local server then move it over to the new site's upload file and can import it successfully. I always have problems on the restore. I have tried it multiple times. The first time, I followed directions to the tee but it would come back with the plugins intact but then no posts or images. This last time, it came back as a database error. that has happened a couple of times. here is the error:
Could not find site ecraftandsharetest.com. Searched for table wp_8rrx6r_blogs in database ecrafttest. Is that right?
What do I do now? Read the bug report page. Some of the guidelines there may help you figure out what went wrong. If you’re still stuck with this message, then check that your database contains the following tables:
What I have done in the past is dump all the database tables and the files and start again with a fresh install. I don't want to keep doing that. How can I start over successfully without having to do that each time? and...... can you talk me through the restore. What should or shouldn't I be check marking on the restore? This is a multisite and I understand that I am just restoring the main site. I have had success migrating/restoring subsites. thanks in advance
