Can you run a web server and your application locally on your
workstation?

--------

Andy, good idea. The issue is that the web server has a HUGE amount of
configuration, which changes fairly often. It would be difficult to keep
the two configurations in sync for each of the computers used by our
development team.

I do have a related question though. I really like Tortoise's diff and
merge interfaces, but I am also quite comfortable using the command line
for anything we need. I'm working on installing svn on the webserver to
facilitate quicker day-to-day operations. Right now I'm using Tortoise
with mapped drives to smba shares. In the configuration, it remembers
the 'Y' drive, not a path on the server. I can see some issues coming up
with different path names.

Here's the question: How can I use both the command line and the mapped
drives on the same working copy? Does anyone know a good workaround?
