    Is it possible to hook up my local code base for siteFinity to our live testing environment?

    It's a lot easier to develop in VS 2010 than on NotePad++ on our live server, but I want to be able to connect to it's DB etc. so I can view it locally, and modify it locally.

    Thanks.

    Hi Ryan Ternier,

    You can just connect your local project to the production SQL server and you will get all data on your local project. You can use Visual Studio to create and work with ASP.NET Web sites (which are also known as Web applications) in a variety of configurations: local IIS sites, file-system sites, File Transfer Protocol (FTP)–deployed sites, and remote sites. You may find the following links useful

    Thanks Ivan for the quick reply.

    I assumed I could do that - I just didn't know if there would be any issues if somethign existed locally and not on the server and someone tried to view it - but then realized it would be the same with any system where 2 different code bases hit the same DB.

    Thanks.

    Hello Ryan Ternier,

    The better option is using TFS, CVS or another revision control system if you want to track some changes or file updates. Otherwise you may proceed with your initial option.
