How do I set up a local test environment in Magento?
Many users like to have the ability to create a local test store in Magento where they can play around with modifications related to Ultimento and all the various features of Magento itself.
Setting up a local test environment is easy if you use the following steps:
- Depending on your OS, add a host entry so that magento.local points to 127.0.0.1 (have Magento running on port 80). This way, you can access your local installation with http://magento.local
- Make sure to change your Unsecure “Base URL” to http://magento.local/ from “System” > “Configuration”
- Let us know when you’re done by opening a ticket in your account so that we can add the URL to your license
- Afterwards, remember to revalidate your key by going to Ultimento > Settings and saving the form where you have entered your license key.
