    I have a working centmin mod installation on one of my linode servers. I'm now considering to clone this linode to another linode server to be used as a development server on a subdomain (dev.mycurrentsite.com).

    What should I think of before I do this? I guess I have to edit vhost files but are there som other aspects that I should think about?

    The good thing about cloning on Linode is it's worry free as you can mess up a clone and still re-clone again an again until you get it right as long as you don't touch the original Linode ;)

    Thank you!

    On the clone server, what should I change to get this development site working? Just vhost files?
