How to create your staging environment with WordPress Manager

Once you have accessed the WordPress Manager, you can create your new staging environment as follows.

Step 1

Select the website for which you would like to create your staging environment

Step 2

Click the Staging link under Actions

Step 3

Complete the required information. You can create the staging site in one of two locations

Option 1 - Subdomain

A subdomain is something like staging.kbtutorial.com


  1. Domain - enter the full subdomain name i.e. staging.yoursite.com, mystaging.yoursite.com etc. (remember to replace yoursite.com with your own domain name)
  2. Directory - leave this blank since the staging site will be installed in the root directory
  3. Database - leave the database name as-is
  4. Click Confirm

Option 2 - Folder

A folder is something like kbtutorial.com/staging




  1. Domain - enter the domain name. This will normally be the same domain as your WordPress hosting service
  2. Directory - enter the directory name where you would like the staging site to be installed. This can be called anything.  
  3. Database - leave the database name as-is
  4. Click Confirm

Congrats. Your staging site will now be created. It will take a couple of minutes to appear under your WordPress installations.
