How To Install A Fresh Copy Of WordPress

Looking for a way to get a fresh new WordPress instance installed? With our Mshini site tools, you can easily spin up a default WordPress instance on your staging environment.

You would need an existing staging site, where the new WordPress instance will be installed.

Please be aware that installing a fresh new WordPress instance onto your staging environment will replace all the existing site content, so you should only perform a fresh new install on staging when you are sure that the current staging site can safely be replaced.

If you already have an existing staging site, to get started, log into your Mshini hosting account.

Once logged in, you can navigate to your Staging Sites tab.

On the right-hand side, you will find our Mshini Site Tools. To spin up a fresh new WordPress install, locate and click on the Fresh Install button.

This will bring up your site history page, where you will see a progress bar while the new WordPress instance is installed.

Once done, and the spinning cog changes to a tick, you can check out your fresh new WordPress install on your staging site URL.

But what if you do not have an existing staging site? In such an instance, you can simply push the current production site onto staging, using the Production to Staging button via the Live Sites tab, and then replace the staging site with a fresh install.
