I have multisite subfolders enabled set up in XAMPP for windows XP.
I also have the same set up on my web hosting service running LINUX.
Goal: set up a local testing environment that matches the live environment to enable me to download the live environment to local environment for testing....with no too much fiddling.
I am a novice, I admit that, so apologies if I come across confused.
I have got as far as setting up XAMPP; the db has different name from the live db so have the table prefix
This is the configuration in XAMPP: C:\xampp\htdocs\mysite
Could you please advise on best practice to mirror live and local environment?
