I am new to Drupal and have it installed on a server running CentOS with Apache in for 'production'. I copied everything over to a dev directory and duplicated the database, changed the settings.php file to point to the dev version of the database. When I make an update in Admin of my dev version the change also appears in the public version. It does not seem to do this when updating 'Content' but other changes seem to be showing in both places. How could changes be appearing in both places when the databases are separate?
Some examples of items that have magically appeard in public when made in dev:
* 2 New Image Styles [Admin -> Config -> Media -> Image Styles]
* Edits to Taxonomy terms
