    Fix - Could not restore content after renaming a project

    This may have been posted already , I tried my best to search if this kind of post exists , if it is , please delete admins. Just sharing for those who would encounter it and need a fix.

    So you registered on UaaS , created a trial account , and upgraded to starter plan. You renamed the project, then cloned it via the cmd or other way , booted up the project , and attempted to restore from live, But you are greeted with the error :

    The source environment has thrown a Umbraco.Deploy.Exceptions.RemoteApiException with message: The remote API was not found, or 
    args were invalid, or request was too long. It might have been caused by an inner with message: (empty)


    Or maybe you've already cloned the project and needed to restore content from live , but it no longer works after renaming the project.


    To fix this , edit this file: /config/UmbracoDeployConfig.config , highlighted in purple border and green text :


    The new url can be found on your cloud cpanel , highlighted in red.

    New Url

    All Credits of this fix is by a man named "Gabriel" from UaaS

    pheeew! Thank you! (and Gabriel).

    But Umbraco, this needs to be in the documentation, or automatically update pre clone

    Just had this issue myself. Would be nice if it as updated when the project is renamed.

    Thanks for posting the solution.
