Anyone successfully using staging copies of DMS sites on a SiteGround server?

Recommended Posts


I'm asking because when I make a staging copy the result is that no images show on the front end. That includes all DMS editor images.
In the attached screenshot you'll see squares where DMS editing should be and broken images where actual images should be.


When I inspect via chrome, all images appear to have the proper paths and I can even go to them directly.

Something's hosed, probably in the way SiteGround makes the copy.

No success for me though.


I'm also noticing a few of the icons on the admin dashboard menu in the backend are missing (Gravity Forms, MailChimp for WP, OTW Content Sidebars, Sidebars and Widgets, Sucuri Security).


When I went from local dev to live, I had some minor issues (I used BackupBuddy and migrated) like every URL appending an additional .com to the end: www.site.com.com. Other than that, all seems good on the live side. Overall I'm liking SG better than Media Temple.

That's what SG support just suggested.
I'm not sure why that should matter, though it clearly does.

In the end I had to add an A record, pointing to SG, from my CloudFlare account, for the staging subdomain.

      I have a map here http://www.iloveoffset.com/maps/
      I want to add several pointer locations to the map, but when I do they do not appear.
      On this map there are 2 pointer locations and as you can there is only one visible.
      Earlier today I added 7 and could only see 4 so there is something odd going on.
      My theme is up to date

      I've been having trouble unlocking the template section for past couple of weeks. When I try clicking nothing happens. 
      I've deleted my custom css and removed plugins. Im down to having only the following plugins:
      Contact Form 7
      DMS Professional Tools
      Pagelines Updater
      It was working fine before i have no idea what's going on with it.

      My DMS 2 site http://www.heart-stone.com/ will not save any new custom css... I can still edit templates and publish those but any custom css that I enter never saves.
      All WP files, themes, and plugins are up to date. 
      Any thought about what might be causing this?

      Is there a way to edit the custom CSS via FTP? I know I can edit the custom code in the Chrome editor but is there a file path I can use to find and edit the CSS directly from our FTP?
      Thanks in advance for the help!
