In file public_html/ I have the follwoing settings:
DB_SERVER_: localhost

As I see in my Account Technical Details my Temp URL is:*******
I edit myphpsql ps_shop_url with the following setting
physical_uri: /***********.ch/

When I go to*******/
I get the following error message: Error 500 - Internal Server Error
Hello WEMS, Thank you for your question about testing a PrestaShop site with a Temp URL. Since PrestaShop has issues resolving over a Temp URL, we recommend using a Host File Modification. This is covered in our article How to configure PrestaShop 1.5 with a Temp URL. This article was written for PrestaShop 1.5, but the steps are the same in 1.6. Thank you, John-Paul
