I have a bit of a challenge related to SSO and, in particular, cloning from a production server. I want to clone my production server to another server for various reasons (dev, testing, etc). I’ll explain this with an example,
Let’s say my production servers are www (WordPress) and forum (Discourse). I have SSO running and all is well.
I also want to have, say, www2 (WordPress) and forum2 (Discourse) and move the entire contents of the forum server to forum2. Let’s assume I have DNS all configured and so on.
My planned process is to…
- Backup forum
- Save settings on forum2
- Restore the backup to forum2
- Restore the settings I saved (from forum2)
If I am NOT using SSO this is all pretty solid. But with SSO I have a problem. After the restore, forum2 is now pointing to www (not www2) as its SSO authority, so I can’t even log on.
How / where can I modify www2 after the restore so that I point it to www2?
