If you’ve gone a little too far, need to start over, or just need to update your Staging site’s content to reflect recent changes on the live production site, don’t worry – it’s easy!
Just head to the Staging tab of the site’s Flywheel dashboard and click the “Reset Staging” button. You’ll see the following pop-up, asking you to verify that you’d like to overwrite your staging site and confirm with your Flywheel password:
Once you confirm and click the “Reset staging site” button, you’ll have a fresh copy of your live production site available and ready to go in your staging site! The total time to complete the refresh will be a byproduct of both how large your database is and the total file-size of your site. For most sites, the job should complete in a matter of minutes.
If you have any questions or would like to just check in on the status of a reset staging site, feel free to contact our team.
