Manage Data Sources

From the Manage Data Sources screen, change the data source to PROD then click Replace.  You will receive a pop-up saying that the Data Source has changed (this may take a bit).  Click Ok.  **Please note that depending on the template, the Manage Data Sources screen may look a bit different. **

 

It might look like this:
