I've set up all three sites (local in user doc, testing in c wamp/www and on my remote server)so that I can test PHP and MYSQL on a testing server on my local machine. What I don't understand is why should I also have the site in my local, wouldn't it be sensible for me to work directly on the testing server and not use the additional site in my local documents folder.
What is the advantage of three sites.
Thanks

Generally it makes sense to set the same folder for your testing and local server.

Thanks the tutorials I watched showed one site being created in local user docs and one in the wamp directory. I shall assume that this was to demonstrate the difference between the two.
Thanks
