I am trying to clone a WordPress website (Not a Multisite) from a subdomain (main.example.com) to a subdirectory (demo.example.com/dir1).

I checked the documentation and found below command (Highlighted in yellow)

However, when I tried the same I got the error -> [ERROR] Subfolder not found!

sudo site demo.example.com -clone-from=main.example.com -subfolder=/dir1

Please let me know if I'm missing something!

Webinoly version: 1.17.8

Current stack version: 1.8

That's not how it works!

When using the subfolder parameter, you can only move from domain1/folder to domain2/folder. So, you are receiving an error because that subfolder doesn't exist in the main site.

That makes sense! The documentation didn't make it clear, thank you for the quick answer!

Cloning from subdomain/domain to subfolder might bring up more complexity, and would need additional params like source-subfolder and dest-subfolder. Better to handle it manually.

Thanks again!
