I have a domain-based multisite with domain mapping. Until now I've been developing locally with
- my hosts file setup to handle all sites through localhost
- a flag in my wp-config.php, indicating whether to use the local or live db
This makes development very pleasant, because development and production environment are very similar and all paths are always identical.
Now I need to develop on a public / non-localhost address. What's the best way to accomplish that - or what options exist in general.
