use production environment in other environments


I created a new staging environment for my Rails application called "staging". I would like to use the production database while in the staging mode. I'm pretty sure I need to modify environments/staging.rb (which I cloned from environments/production.rb), but I don't know which variable to set to the production database and how.

Thanks, Tiberiu

The title should be "use production database in other environments"

If you've already set up the configured environment can't just add a
staging section to your database.yml that points to the production db?
Have you checked out #72 Adding an Environment - RailsCasts

Hi Mike,

That's what I ended up doing - I just thought there is a more Railish way to do it. And thanks for the railscast episode.

Thanks, Tiberiu
