Testing Datafeedr in local WP environment

Is there a way to test Datafeedr plugin locally? And how?

If it's not possible what is the best practice of testing and then rolling out a new Daatfeedr store for the live Wordpress blog?

Welcome to the forums!

Yes, that's possible. I do it all the time.

Just make sure your local server URL is

Then add your connection key and import your store.

Thanks Eric.

I just entered (which is the URL I use for local) as a domain name in basic store settings and tried to import the store.

But got this error:


The domain name you have entered in the Factory does not match this website's domain name. Please log into the Factory and modify your domain name under your store's 'Basic store settings'

I should probably specify that I'm running XAMPP for Windows for my local environement. I'm not sure if I need to change any settings in XAMPP in order for the local server URL to work with datafeedr..?

Your advice would be greatly appreciated!

Unfortunately Datafeedr isn't compatible with Windows servers.

Hi Eric,

Just to clarity I use it on a Windows machine but XAMPP that I'm running for the local environment is using Apache and MySql ( I'm not deeply technical but I thought this might make a difference...

Are there step I could take to get this local URL to work with datafeedr. It would really save me days of trying to figure out how else I can build and test the shop if there was a way.

Many Thanks

Unfortunately being Apache and MySQL won't help. It's the server (Windows) that is incompatible. If you were able to emulate a Linux server locally then it would work.

I guess you could install it on your live site in a sub-domain or sub-folder under a completely new installation of WordPress to test thing out.

Thanks for your help Eric. I think I'll try your suggestion
