RSYNC-ing vanilla from xampp to host - Am I missing anything?
I would like to be able to make changes on xampp then rsync my changes to the actual host. So my xampp becomes my master copy and when I am comfortable with changes I simply rsync them to the host and the site is updated (and of course the database is unchanged on the host).
As far as I can tell I will need to exclude *.ini cache files from being copied from xampp to host, and make the config.php the same on both systems. Anything else I should NOT be copying to the host??
I have made it such that I have the same dbName, dbUser, dbPass on both xampp and the host. Then I diff-ed the two config.php files and have questions about the following config params:
$Configuration['Garden']['Cookie']['Salt'] =... $Configuration['Garden']['InstallationID'] =... $Configuration['Garden']['InstallationSecret']=...
I assume salt is part of the password generation/checking, so I'll simply copy the salt from the host to xampp and copy the admin passwd from the host-mysql_phpmyadmin to xampp-mysql_phpmyadmin in the appropriate table.
The installationID and installationSecret did not exist in my xampp install for unknown reasons. Can anyone shed any light on what these are used for? For now I've copied them to my xampp config and it seems to be working.
