    Development Environment: Trial License for Sitefinity*

    Staging Environment: Purchased License from Sitefinity (but without Sync Module).*

    I am working on a project. Actually I developed some code & other contents (using Sitefinity's Admin panel including Templates, Pages, Images) locally.
    Now I want to Migrate/Sync the new changes to staging environment.
    But Staging environment License dosen't has the facility to Sync.
    I tried to use visual studio 2013 data comparison tool But using this I had PageId conflict. I debugged this issue found that some ID's ware different on both Databases, sply for Ownr field.

    I want to know if I change this Field value & copy new records in Staging DB will solve my problem.

    Or there's any other way to integrate my changes to Staging Database.

    Hi Amit,

    Such scenario is not supported without sitesync module. The easiest solution is to replace the database.

    As best practice, you could made amendments in one db and use that database whenever you need it after that. Note that you need to have also the same configuration on the destination project.
