I'm syncing across local computers over to my remote server. In light of Director::set_dev_servers, I would like to know if I can check if the status of where I am viewing the site.

If it is localhost, i'd like to run


If it is on the server

$databaseConfig = array(...

define('current_domain', $_SERVER['HTTP_HOST']);

start of conditional statement
#### whatever port you are running your test server

if(current_domain == "localhost:####"): 

then include the localhost environment...

this allows me to safely sync and overwrite the complete mysite folder
