I'm attempting to clone a Magento 2 barebones install, simply by compressing the site, exporting the db, extracting to another location, editing env.php for new db credentials, dumped old DB into new DB. All attempts to reach the install yield a 403 forbidden page.
I could force a reinstall, but it would kill all my extensions I've loaded. There are no products/orders, I've just setup the base install I need for many sites.
Has anyone cloned Mage 2 successfully?
