Topic: how to import an existing website for local test

Hi guys,

I am new with rails. i have an existing  website that is build using RoR.  i have installed a virtual box with ubunto 10 and everything is working perfect.
now i want to kind of import a copy of this website locally on my machine .. do some test and create new staff then re-deploy it ..

is this doable or does any other alternative solution exists ?

a help or orientation is greatly appreciated..

thanks

Is your project under some version system? (git, svn ...)

Re: how to import an existing website for local test

it is my friend's one hosted with soem provider . using RoR and apache,  nopt sure under which system ?
where can i check that. i want simply to know steps to follow to bring it in test mode locally on my local machine and not testing on the server directly..

Thanks]
