Have my install of magento running well.

Want to have a second copy as a test db to load extensions etc

Created a new directory and copied magento

Created a new mysql db and connected magento to it

Cannot figure out how to access (launch in browser) the new front-end or back-end in the test version.

If you can point me in the correct direction I would appreciate that.

Well....it would be dependant upon where the folder is located.  If you named the folder “demo”; then your url would be: http://www.yoursite.com/demo and http://www.yoursite.com/demo/admin
