Hi Yuchen,

I'm not sure if it's needed, but if we don't make major changes to the current 
installation, we can make an SQL dump before that machine is decommissioned, 
then host the dump on the new site. I agree that identifying information should 
be removed, but it's easy to overlook tables, columns or rows that contain such 

Another option is to create a script that generates a development environment, 
so a live db wouldn't be necessary.

It's up to you to make that choice. Let us know if we can be of any help.

Thanks, : )
