Hello Hsu Yao Chang,

To create a Test instance from production, you can follow this article:

Many add-ons do keep their data for the plugin on the database, but keep in mind you will still need to activate the necessary plugins in Marketplace since each instance requires a license.

Let me know if you have any questions about this!



Dear Shannon,

Thanks for your kindly reply. If I use the way to restore database as shown as below:

psq.jpgBut I don't find plugin after I restore the database. Which table is saved plugin information ? Thanks a lot.

There's a PLUGINDATA table that stores some of that information. However, it really depends on the add-on.

However, you should just be able to restore the database fully, and then re-enable the add-ons you want in Universal Plugin Manager. Wherever the provider of the add-on has chosen to store that data it should re-connect once you enable it.


Dear Shannon, 

Thanks for your kindly reply.

Best Regards, Anderson Hsu
