Thanks Stefan. Should the machine ID be the same as well then? It sounds like I can just do an rsync over from the production server as long as I set those the same. Very similar to the hardware upgrade instructions from the website.

Yes, to be able to clone/mirror your production server, use exactly the same domain name for your testing server. This is due to the internal path structure. Watch out for the same OS and architecture (32/64 bit).

Make sure that nobody else than you can log in, e.g. by adjusting the login module and excluding this module from cloning.

Others might want to add more details about this topic.
