Well, it was another disastrous update on my end. This time I wrote a note to self to NOT upgrade past 2.4.5 unless there is a groundbreaking feature. In my case, the computer actually did a restart in the middle of trying to update itself. Sorted everything out now by uninstalling completely and starting all over from scratch including VirtualBox install, and then reconnecting manually all my sites in progress.
Anyway, today I’m trying for the first time the CLONE feature and all it’s doing is showing “Duplicating Site Container” with the 3 green dots animating. I left it animating for 30 minutes before I gave up and closed the window…
PS> After that, I tried launching the app again but nothing launches when I click the icon. I had to restart the computer. And THEN, when LfB opened, the “clone” was listed in red with an exclamation mark next to it. And clicking it shows “Error! Site container is missing.” And next to WordPress Version: “Unable to fetch WordPress version from wp-includes/version.php”
Please help… why is cloning not working?
