How To Change Site URL Of A Wordpress Snapshot?

Posted October 12, 2020 306 views

I’m going to do some major changes to my Wordpress theme. So wanted to clone it and work on it there.

I can install the Wordpress clone snapshot on another Digitalocean droplet. But how can I change the domain name there?

It’s redirecting to me my original site.
