How to Access Same Website Locally and Non-locally?

  • # May 29, 2013 at 7:01 am

    Hello..
    I’m working on a website locally using Xampp and I need to access the non-local site at the same time. The non-local site has a dedicated IP. Is there any way to open the non-local site (so I can copy and paste) while still viewing the local site? I thought about accessing it with the IP but it resolves to the domain name.

    Thanks in advance.

    Did you give the local website the same name as the domain name? I’m using domain.dev locally for domain.com etc. live, works perfectly.

    or ssh. : )

    “copy-and-paste” *what*? I can’t imagine anything that would be (properly) done that way. Are you duplicating content on a CMS, or something similar? If so, you should be doing it once and then simply updating the database once you’re done.

    Yaaa Croco Dillon, I gave the local website the same name as the domain name.
