Clone Production Server to Staging Server


I want to make a clone of my production server to test upgrades/custom work.

If I clone the active server, that is using my production key will that cause issues?
Am I able to clone it, start it up and apply my staging server key?


Hi @rperneel,

Thanks for the post! If you have a staging license, you should use this license key after you have cloned your server. Once the server is available you would be able to modify the license key without issue under ‘Administration > License.’

Hope this helps,
