Sometimes you need to have a copy of your moodle LMS site to achieve certain tasks such as testing a new plugin before installing it or test the upgrade process before upgrading a production site to a newer moodle version. Another use case for using a copy of your main Moodle site would be for training teachers and tutors, in which an additional instance similar to the production site is used for this purpose.
