Before you can use site synchronization, there are the following prerequisites:
Staging & Syncing feature has the following limitations:
The Staging & Syncing feature of Sitefinity CMS can synchronize dynamic modules and dynamic content types.
If you have a dynamic module on both target and source server and then you upgrade to Sitefinity CMS 6.0, even if you already have the same module on both environments, it has different ID in the different databases. Before you want to synchronize dynamic modules, you must duplicate the database from the source to the target server.
You can choose to synchronize the structure of the module or both the structure and its data. The structure of the module includes creating any new fields and dynamic module types, editing them or changing the hierarchy.
IMPORTANT: When you change the structure of a module, you must do this only on the source server. Sitefinity CMS will synchronize the target with the source.
IMPORTANT: If you have multisite license, when you create a new module, you must also manually synchronize the dynamicModuleConfig.config files on the source and the destination servers, prior to the synchronization.
