I am looking for creating a clone of the project from the live server to my localhost for development. I am new to Neos and the project on the live server is not version controlled. How can I go ahead still and create the same environment at my localhost.
- The same content
- The same database and everything.
Thanks for any help in advance.
Guessing that you know a bit about Neos and Flow from your post, I’m going to describe the steps needed to setup up locally and export/import the content
- Hopefully there is a
composer.json file - copy that to your local installation
- export the content of existing site with the command
- Import the content to your local site with
- Create a admin user via the command line tool
- And you are good to go
If you need to do this on a more regular basis (syncing live DB and assets with your local environment) there is a tool called MagicWand which can all do this in one command: https://github.com/sitegeist/sitegeist.magicwand
Thanks for the answers everyone. I imported a whole zip of the project and dumped the database to my local db version and now everything works as expected.
