    Downloading SS database to local server? Link to this post

    Hi

    My external server is very slow, and because I am to create about 70 new pages I would like to download the database to my MAMP server, make the pages there, and upload them again.

    Can any of you help me?

    Can you not just:

    1. Export the database using phpMyAdmin
    2. Import the .sql file into a fresh MAMP database
    3. Hook that database into a copy of the basecode
    4. Make changes / Add Pages
    5. Replace database on live server (make a new one if you can, then switch using /mysite/_config.php)
    6. Upload /assets folder if you have uploaded any files during the content creation.
