[Basic ? ] Development store?

Recommended Posts

Can I get some help setting up a store that is purely for development? I have a live store now and it would be useful to have a development store with a separate database and separate directory..

 

A duplicate of my live store basicly.

woo!

How about setting up a local server? You can use EasyPHP, it's free.

Assuming you can have many mySql databases another way would be to

 

create a new directory on your current server -

copy your catalog across to the new directory -

re-configure the new directory's configure.php files

link them to your new database

password protect your new admin directory

set a disallow in your robots.txt for the new directory

Cool, I will give it a shot. For some reason my permissions are blocked for me to copy the whole osc1 database from phpMyAdmin. I guess I will copy it over one table at a time. Oh well, I have done more tedious things.

 

Thanks for you help! And, I have been looking for something like easyphp for awhile!!! thanks again.

woo!
