    Hi,

    I recently purchased the Premium theme.
    I would like to set up a staging environment on my cloud provider to set up the theme in full and then migrate my changes to my live site.

    Typically the way it’s offered in SiteGround is:
    1) Create staging
    2) protect URLs

    What I plan:
    1) Install Generate press
    2) Upload the Premium .zip
    3) Set up completely

    After this SiteGround offers an option to copy over everything from Staging to Live via a button click.

    My question is:
    Does the .zip need to be different in these two environments?
    Or the copy would be fine?

    Hi there,

    The same GP Premium file would be fine 🙂

    Just make sure to re-enter your license key once you’ve moved to the live site.

    Thanks for the reply, just a quick follow up question – soon as I copy the staging live, the licence might not be valid because it’s copied over. Will this cause the live site to revert to the free theme defaults? Will I need to re-customize after reentering the licence?

    Thanks in advance.

    No – the license key is only for automatic updates. Otherwise you would get this error:
