How to populate a dev server with data from Production?


I wonder if there is ‘correct way’ to upload some test data from a Production forum back-up into a dev server.

Obviously the dev server will lack a domain.

I’m using a cloud server for dev.

What are the gotchas here?

I guess it’s lacking Productions app.yml so there should be no risk of it shooting off emails?

Thanks! … Sorry! Found a guide here:

Emails are disabled during an import. Once it is finished you can just use the disable_emails site setting.
