Development Server URL
I currently have a copy of cmsBuilder installed on a sub-domain and I use this for development purposes.
I am keen to make use of the new functionality that uses the "Website Prefix URL" setting in "General Settings".
Is there any documentation that explains how to use this correctly? I am not at all clear on how it works...
Thank you for your help.
Many thanks for your message. Yes, I am using cPanel and I have a demo username account.
Can you clarify what the development mode enables me to do?
Will it create a copy of cmsBuilder files so I can experiment with plugins?
Does it hook up to a different database so I am not testing with live listings/users and other data...?
I am just trying to understand what functionality it offers and how it should be used.
I think the 'Website Prefix URL' feature is intended for actual website installs that don't have DNS activated. For example, a client with an old website that's still running under their current DNS while you build out their new CMSB on a different server.
If you're wanting to have a separate CMSB & database installation aside from your live site where you can experiment with plugins, etc., I'd say create a separate testing installation and use that. I can't speak for Interactive Tools, but the license agreement with my current version 2.53 reads "You may make one copy for backup, staging, or archival purposes."
