I installed wp as a development site on my ubuntu 10.10 desktop. I configured it as an apache2 virtualhost so that I can access my test domain with this: http://mydom.com.
I now have successfully set this up as a "real" or hosted domain, and now want to reconfigure my own test domain so that
- it does not interfere with the real domain
- I can access my dev site every now and then as mydomain.com.localhost
I added an /etc/hosts entry of "mydomain.com.localhost". I also modified apache2's sites-enabled/mydomain.com and changed the servername.
Didn't quite work. It seems to me that wordpress is still working as originally configured. Do I need to make any changes in wp? What?
I was hoping not to re-install wp; unless of course that's the easiest and safest way.
I plan to use this local wp install to develop themes, and as a sort of a backup of the "real" domain. Does that make sense? And doable?
