I'm rather new to Magento and read in this article that it is possible to configure the base_url values in app/etc/local.xml. Would be nice to have this functionality for running multiple environments, for which Magento doesn't seem to offer a lot of possibilities out of the box (correct me if I'm wrong here, though).
Am I assuming correctly that the values for base_url in local.xml will take precedence over the config values in the database?
What other database config values would you be able to override this way? Not finding a lot of documentation on this...
<config> <global> <!-- ... --> </global> <stores> <default> <web> <unsecure> <base_url>http://beispiel.tld/shop/</base_url> </unsecure> </default> <admin> <web> <unsecure> <base_url>https://beispiel.tld/shop/</base_url> </unsecure> </admin> </stores> </config>
