    Now that XF 2.3 RC has been released, I'm attempting to create a /test/ folder on my live site and install a copy of my site there for testing.

    This is the guide I have followed
    How to duplicate a live site to use as a test site

    Afterward, I go to the livesite/test/ expecting to see a copy of the site but it's blank with no errors at all.
    I couldn't login to ACP from /test/admin.php because it's blank as well.


    There is no error from nginx, server, etc.

    Where do I start to investigate the issues? Alternatively, is there a guide for centminmod users to make a duplicate site for testing?

    Easier to just setup a subdomain.domain.com on as new site on Centmin Mod so /home/nginx/domains/subdomain.domain.com/public web root for Xenforo, copy data there and then update xenforo domain and test.

    Just use option 2 in the centminmod menu to create a new vhost?
