The configuration system in Drupal was designed to manage and sync configuration between instances of a Drupal site. So before configuration management can be useful, we must have another instance--or clone--of our Drupal site. In this lesson, you will learn:

  • Why cloning a Drupal site is necessary in order to manage configuration
  • How to clone a Drupal site using tools that have a graphical user interface (GUI)

If you prefer using using web-based or GUI tools rather than command line tools such as Drush and Git, then this lesson is for you.
