Running tests locally #2553

Hey there

Now that tests are all in the main repo, we should make sure someone running tests locally will not lose data. I mean, I for one just lost all data on my dev box just because I wanted to test tests :)

YOURLS-unit-tests used to mention:

  • Create an empty MySQL database and user. Do not use an exisiting database or you will lose data, guaranteed.
  • Copy yourls-tests-config-sample.php to yourls-tests-config.php, edit it and include your database name, user and password.

I think we should provide such a config file for tests, and some sort of checks to make sure the average Ozh Joe won't erase all their data. Thoughts?
