Can you advise what happens in situations where a site running BP is backed up using a plugin like BackupBuddy or Duplicator, and then migrated to a development server for work to be done on it, or the other way around?
The API key is presumably stored in your database and is tied to a domain.
What happens when the domain name changes under the circumstances described, so that in effect there is a duplicate domain name under the same API key?
Similarly, what would happen if the same API key was used on different live domains?
What I have been doing is to deactivate the plugin as soon as the clone is activated on my localhost VM, but wondering if I should be deactivating the plugin on the live site prior to making a migration backup so that it is in the deactivated state when the localhost version is brought up?
