Add VIP production site content for local development

SQL database

Media library

  • Media Library Exports for a VIP Platform WordPress site can be accessed in the VIP Dashboard.
  • VIP Local Development Environments can redirect media requests to a site’s production environment by creating the local environment with the  --media-redirect-domain parameter.
  • For other local development applications, a site’s production media library can be mirrored by using a stage file proxy plugin. This approach enables media files newly added to production to be available to the local environment on-the-fly and to avoid needing access to extremely large and time-consuming media export files.
