I mean: you are making synchronization (execute "Synchronize Environment" command )every time you are making the changes in your MT5 (related to the indicators or EA or any), and -
Thank you Sergey for your instructions. I have followed that and I got a green message saying "migration successful"; so I hope this is now working.

An update from me about the VPS.
After setting it up and geting it synchronised I switched off my computer, leaving the VPS to take over, which is what it does right?
I opened my laptop today and decided to synchronise again...and noticed that after the synchronisation process it switches off the "AutoTrading" button in my Meta Trader.
I switched it on again...to allow Autotrading..is this correct ? or should I leave it off?
Please advise anyone...thanks in advance for your help.
As far as I remember - autotrading feature is always 'on' in VPS irrespective we switch it off on our Metatrader or not.
From this article - How to Prepare a Trading Account for Migration to Virtual Hosting :
"Regardless of whether autotrading is allowed or forbidden in your client
terminal or in the properties of a launched Expert Advisor, any trading
robot is allowed to trade after being moved to the virtual terminal."
