Local Perch Site Utilizing Production DB
Before everyone hops in, I have transitioned to developing all of my sites locally and it has been great! With that being said, there have been rather frequent occasions that I would like to be working locally (MAMP for php etc), but using the production database to pull in the content that is being served on the production website. Is this possible? We do this quite regularly with my full time position (.NET shop) by simply editing our DB connection strings. I've read the document for updating the perch config file to account for local, staging, production databases, but those are just plugging in the credentials to access the DB from what I'm seeing.
Does anyone have any suggestions, ideas, or opinions on the matter?
Thanks in advance!!
