Snapshot restore wizard completely fails if not restoring to the exact same spot

If I am trying to restore the site using snapshot and if the folder structure of the server is not exactly the same then Snapshot inserts the server path in the middle of the URL because of which the URLs do not work and the Media in restore causes 404s.

    Hi Logan ,

    I’ve tried the snapshot-installer on various different setups and didn’t see this issue. Could you tell me please if the “destination” of your migration was empty? If there was a WP installation already there then that should’ve been removed preferably to make a fully clean install from the backup.

    Trying to see what steps you took exactly on restoring with the custom script so I could reproduce and see what the issue might’ve been.

    It was done on a completely clean folder the second time. The first time was a try to install from a live wordpress that had a basic site running so could use the plugin restore process instead of the php approach.

Thank NAME, for their help.

Let NAME know exactly why they deserved these points.

Gift a custom amount of points.
