    Hi,

    I need to create a 'dev' version of an existing Sitefinity 3.7 website and would like some advice on what steps I need to take. Here's my todo list so far, is there anything else I need to consider?

    1 - Backup the SQL Database
    2 - Create a new Database based on the backup
    3 - Copy the site files to a new location
    4 - Create an IIS website matching the existing site, but mapping to a 'dev.website.com' subdomain)
    5 - Change the database connection strings in the web.config file

    Is there anything else I should consider? Are there tables in the database where I need to replace the domain name?

    Thanks in advance,

    Nick
