I think that our license allows us to set up a development xenForo site. Is there a recommended way of copying your current forum to a dev environment? My motivation is that I'm about to upgrade from xF 1.1.2 to the current version, and I want an exact duplicate of the current site on a subdomain so that I can practice and test there.
I was thinking of setting up a subdomain in cPanel and then moving the entire xenForo file hierarchy and MySQL database over from the main site. With both database and files, theoretically, we should be good to go. But what about if the domain name or the name of our production database is hardcoded in the files or database?
Is there a recommended way of handling this?
