Restoring TR 5.1 Prod db to our self hosted Test environment


#1

Is there anything we need to be aware of or do after we restore our self hosted Prod db to out Test environment?

Both Prod and Test will be at the same version.

Hi Brian,

Thanks for your posting! I can recommend reviewing our staging/test installation documentation to learn more about the required steps:

http://docs.gurock.com/testrail-admin/admin-staging
http://docs.gurock.com/testrail-admin/admin-restoring-backup

It’s basically involves installing TestRail on the staging/test system (with the same version as your production instance) and then restoring a database backup to the staging/test database. The documentation explains the specifics but I’m also happy to help in case you have any questions.

I hope this helps!

Cheers,
Tobias
