In a testing environment, it is commonly understood that you have a 
separate slice of the sets of components what you want to test.

in this example, you are testing a new version of roundcube, hosted on a 
separate port(or directory) of apache (or on a separate machine), a 
separate database instance in mysql.  The imap backend stays the same, 
so you don't replicate that.

Since roundcube (on the user end) is similar to a mail client, it only 
stores an address book for users that use roundcubes address book, and 
possibly other user preferences.  Since it does not store mail, once you 
are done testing, simply delete the web hosted instance, delete the 
database you made for the test, and clean up any links or user knowledge 
of the testing envorinoment.  And have a nice day!
