This older question Is the magnetic field zero inside an ideal conductor carrying a current? is explicitly about a regular conductor, but has been marked as a duplicate of a question about superconductors. In addition, it has a useful answer.

I suspect the title referring to an "ideal conductor" is a bit confusing. But I think it should not be marked as a duplicate.
