I am facing issue in porting our live code base to local host for development purpose and to test locally before uploading the changes on live server.
Magento version : 188.8.131.52 CE
Challenges i am facing are
1. live db is quite big having some 50k plus products so it is not feasible to dump the data on each developers pc, so we have hosted the db server on public ip machine for every developer to connect to that db by doing changes in app/etc/local.xml
Thanks for your reply, i will try to figure out any hard coded link if any.
I have one more doubt regarding working on magento , we have a team of 5 developers now once the live code base has been copied on local system we are maintaining the list of files that are changed locally and then only those files are replaced in the live code base.
But suppose if we add some attribute via admin panel how will i come to know which file has been modified since there is very less documentation about what magento does in the backend.
Thanks a lot for the guidance, actually i am quiet new to magento ie some of my doubts may be very basic one.
