Due to tight security restrictions we can't host the admin.php file on our live server. As a result I need to be able to run EE from two locations: One from a dev server (where we include the admin.php file for access to the EE panel) and another from our live server, where we will not include the admin.php file. We only need to serve content there, not manipulate it.
Both the live and dev servers have access to the same DB.
Has anyone done something like this before? Is it possible? If so, what are the details for making this work?
