Copying a Portal in SalesLogix v7.5.1 Application Architect

Question: I would like to copy a portal in SalesLogix v7.5.1 Application Architect so that I am able to connect to a different set of files in the VFS and then deploy it as a second SalesLogix Web client.  I would like to do this for coding and testing purposes.  Is this possible?

Answer: To do what you are asking you should create a second local project and then copy the VFS to it.  Next you will want to create a second build path and second deployment to a different IIS instance.  This will give you two distinct deployments on the same computer, but you will need to remember that any time you apply a Hotfix to one it will affect the other.  You will also want to double check that you are using the correct build path or SalesLogix will get confused.  Alternately, a better way might be to just create a completely separate database because you may not be able to test schema changes as those affect the db immediately.
