We have a Virtual Machine "vDemo" which is acting like our development server, then me as a developer has a copy of it on my PC, however my copy is very old and development server does have other updates by other developers on it.
Now problem is, "vDemo" has a web application named which is in french language and it also has custom asp.net applications related to it. Now what would be the best option for me to copy this web application to my personal virtual machine. I would like to hear best practices and honestly don't answer if you actually never came accross this scenario before in short "no googling at all please"
I already installed French language pack on my Virtual machine server and got all custom layout site templates and images as well from vDemo server.
I can see the web application has its own content Database and I can maybe copy this content DB and create a new web application in my personal server but I am not sure how it will work.
