Create a Staging Site

    Log into cPanel.
    Click the Softaculous Apps Installer link in the Software section.
    On the top-right of the screen, click the file folder so you can view all Softaculous installations.
      (the first icon to the right of the word cPanel at top)
    You will see every site that is in Softaculous. Click the Create Staging button next to the site you want to use.
    On the Staging WordPress page choose your site protocol. Options are http://, http://www, https://, and https://www
    Note: Since all our Hosting plans include free SSL’s we recommend using one of the https options.
    Choose the domain you want to set up the staging site on from the drop-down menu.
    If you want to install the staging site in a directory, enter it in the available field. For example, if you enter ‘test’ in the field you would have to navigate to ‘’ to visit the site.
    If you want to set the name of the testing site’s database, enter it in the available field.
    Click the Create Staging button. You are finished when you see a message stating “Congratulations, the staging was created successfully.”

Now you know how to make a copy of your site for testing using the new Staging tool from Softaculous!
