To do side by side testing, perform the following steps:

  1. Download LobbyCentral Update (not the full installer).
  2. Take a backup of the production database and restore it as lobbycentral_test.
  3. Run the LobbyCentralUpdate.msi on the new server. When prompted for the SQL credentials, use the lobbycentral_test database.


Even though you are installing the update version, it contains all the files needed to run LobbyCentral.


Important Information:

  1. Do not run LobbyCentralSetup.msi because it will attempt to create a new database. 
  2. Do not run LobbyCentralUpdate.msi using your production database, as it will upgrade it and break the production web client.
