Hello,

How to duplicate a shop for test purpose (the “official”, proper way smile; I found different topics on the subject, always with variants).

Thanks for your help.

hi Sylvie,

there are a number of threads about this as everyone has slighty different setups.  It really depends on your own setup. There is no “official Way” about doing this

Ive usually just logged in via ssh
delete my cache
tar the site and dump the database to an sql file.
move files to new site/host.
Untar
load the db
change the app/etc/local.xml file to suit the new db username & pass
change the core_config_data table to suit the new website name

cheers
brendan

Thanks a lot !

From memory, the variants were concerning the var directory, the pearlib, .htaccess ...

Cheers

Sylvie
