One line of code. That’s all you need in order to get your sandbox. Developers often need a place where the can experiment with design ideas or Minimal Viable Productions. This tutorial will show you how to do this.
- Download WordPress from https://wordpress.org/download/
- Unzip the files.
- Delete the file wp-config-sample.php
- Download the file wp-config.php from your WordPress on your web host.
- Edit wp-config.php in your favorite editor.
If you have WordPress up and running the settings in wp-config.php will be almost the same. But you have to change one line of code, if you want to run more than one WordPress installation on your web host.
Find this line:
$table_prefix = 'wp_'; // change this line to: $table_prefix = 'sandbox_';
If you need more WordPress on your web host, just change the table prefix every time.
