I am a newbie trader who wants to use an EA. I installed a VPS on my terminal yesterday and intend to install an EA on Monday. My friend told me that I did it all wrong. That if I install the EA after the VPS the VPS might not recognize the EA and that I might have to reinstall the VPS after the EA. Is this true? I doubt it but I wanted to clear all doubts.

I have read it. That means it recognizes any signal or ea I subscribe to no matter when the subscription was done?

You can synchronize the VPS with your terminal at any time, it's good practise to do so regularly.
So if you add or remove anything on your terminal that will be reflected on the VPS when - and only when! - you sync...

As Andrew said, after each change in your EAs setup or settings (locally) you need to click the Auto Trading button and synchronize with your MQL5 VPS again, in order for those changes to take effect in the virtual server.

This is the best advise I have received. Thanks for telling this. I have to synchronize with every change. Thanks.

I advise you to test your EA in the strategy tester over several years before launching it on your VPS server. Because most of EA are profitable only on trend phases.
