Creating a sandbox / test project

Postby Starbuck » Nov 08, 2017 9:52 pm

I'd like to create a test project where new users can experiment. This should be a sandbox that's separated from other projects to avoid tests from showing in lists, effectiveness, etc. I'd like to avoid creating a completely separate environment but it looks like this might be the best option for this purpose.

Rather than duplicating the server code and creating a new database, I'd rather create a separate instance that runs off the same code and db, just with different tables. I have added a prefix to table names for this purpose. I'm just not sure how to wire this up properly with the folders, symlinks, configs, etc.

So foo.com/my_view_page.php is already mapped to bt1_tables and I'd like to get foo.com/test/my_view_page.php to use test1_tables without copying all of the files into that test folder.

Tips?

Thanks.

As often happens, you look and look and after feeling like you've done your research you post to a forum... and then you find the answers after clicking just one or two more pages...

Are these old solutions still valid?
