Maintaining app/etc/local.xml for development and production servers?
Is there a “sane” method (other than creating a standard username/password for mysql on both production/development servers) to keeping mysql information for both localized development and the environment on a server in the app/etc/local/xml file?
We had thought about possibly using xi:include to pull in the mysql info from an external xml file, but aren’t too confident that it is the “right” solution to this task.
