What is the correct way of cloning a Drupal 8 site?
I’m just beginning to get into Drupal8 development and I’ve found cloning a site does not work the same way as in Drupal7.
Each time I copied the codebase on an existing Drupal8 directory(SiteA), into a new directory(SiteB), duplicated the database and add the new database data to the settings.php of the SiteB codebase, I got the following error:
The website encountered an unexpected error. Please try again later.
So instead of performing a copy of SiteA, I initialised a git repo and copied example.gitignore to .gitignore. I then added and committed all the files to an initial commit.
Then in SiteB, which is completely empty, I did the following to clone the master branch of SiteA:
git pull ../SiteA/.
That successfully cloned into SiteB. I created the files directory, settings.php for SiteB and added the necessary database information.
After all that I still get the same error as above.
I’ve done some research and come across subject on UUID and how updates can only be transferred between sites with the same UUID which aids deployment from dev to staging to LIVE sites. Being my first attempt however, I have not been able to successfully create such a deployment pattern.
Can anyone please point out what I’m missing?
