If you are attempting to clone a WordPress installation using Softaculous and encounter MySQL errors such as "Table 'example_wp276.ie23f_blogs' doesn't exist," it is likely due to Softaculous's inability to clone WordPress Multisite installations.

Here's how to resolve the issue:

  1. For Non-Multisite Requirements:
    • Access the wp-config.php file for the WordPress installation you are trying to clone.
    • Locate the line
      define('WP_ALLOW_MULTISITE', true);.
    • Change true to false.
    • Save the changes and retry the cloning process in Softaculous.
  2. For Multisite Requirements:
    • If the WordPress installation must remain a Multisite, Softaculous is not the right tool for the job.
    • Instead, use the cloning functionality available in the WP Toolkit for cPanel or Installatron, which are capable of handling Multisite installations.

Using WP Toolkit for cPanel:

  • Navigate to the cPanel account of the site you want to clone.
  • Access WP Toolkit.
  • Import the site into WP Toolkit if it's not already listed.
  • Use the 'Clone' feature to migrate the site to another domain.

Using Installatron:

  • Open Installatron from the cPanel Software section.
  • Select the WordPress installation you wish to clone.
  • Use the Import feature to clone the site to a new location.

For detailed steps on using WP Toolkit or Installatron, please refer to our knowledge base articles on "How to Clone a WordPress website between cPanel accounts using WP Toolkit" and "How to Migrate a WordPress Website using Installatron."
