Issues on


So we were able to create a staging 4 site for our website ( On that domain’s wordpress, we were able to install X-theme and a child’s theme for it.

However, when we actually try editing any of the created pages in X, we get this message:

“The preview could not load due to misconfigured URLs. This could happen if you are using multiple environments and the site URL was not updated after migrating.
Origin URL:
Preview URL:

Could you please fix this.

Hi @Web_Services,

Is you site hosting in SiteGround? If so, please check this link for a workaround:

If you are hosted elsewhere and the live and staging site do not share the same database, Please install the Better Search Replace plugin then do the following:

    search for and replace it with and
    search for http:\/\/ and replace it with https:\/\/

Replace with the domain name of your site.

Hope this helps.


So I made the changes you noted and that allowed me to initially edit the site on X. The issue I ran into after that was that I get this page when I try and open it on a browser:

I contacted siteground to get support on this and they told me that I would have to contact X to fix this. Can you please resolve this?

Hi @Web_Services,

Please check this detailed guide. It is not a theme issue but rather incorrect configuration. The article will provide detailed information on how to fixed it. Hope this helps.

Hi Lely,

I tried everything that this guide discusses but was not able to fix this error. Can you please look into it and try to resolve it. I can give you any login credentials that you need.

I was able to get rid of the “too many redirects” issue by changing general settings under wp-admin. However, now we are back to the same issue where I get the image below for each page that I try to edit in Cornerstone.

How can we fix this issue without ending up with the “too many redirects” issue? Please get back to me at your earliest convenience. This is quite urgent.

P.S. Here is a transcript of my previous communication with siteground (our hosting provider) on the matter:

Hello @Web_Services,

To resolve this issue, please login to your FTP of the staging site and then browse to the root folder. Find your wp-config.php file of the staging url and then add the following lines:

Please see the secure note

You will need this lines so that Cornerstone or Pro editor will be force to use the same staging url of the dashboard and not the define urls in Settings > General.

Kindly let us know how it goes.

So I asked siteground to make the changes and this is what they responded with. Should I still ask them to go ahead and make the changes?

Hello @Web_Services,

Thanks for updating the thread. :slight_smile:

Yes, you can let Siteground support know to proceed with the changes. As Siteground support team mentioned that Apache module replaces is on-fly in that regards It’s the only way to fix URLs.
