I have implemented a new magento install (with its own database) in order to have a development version of my e-commerce site.

I would like now to copy the configuration / products ... (everything in fact) of the original version to have an exact copy of my shop.

how can I do that?

Thank you for your help,

Just take a backup of your current store and import this database onto your staging site.

Depending in your skill level you can dump and import using - Command line using mysqldump - Phpmyadmin - sql work bench (heidi sql for example)
