XF 1.4 Setting up a bootstrap file for XF config?

    I'm new to Xenforo and am in the process of learning and customizing my new install. This said, we use a versioned workflow via Beanstalk / GIT so that all dev work is done locally, pushed to a development server for testing and then pushed live to a production server.

    Anyhow, I'm more a designer than programmer (though I'm often more tech savvy that most designers I meet), but am unsure how to setup a bootstrap for the config file so I can configure separate DB config for the various environments. I tried searching and instead found threads relating to a 'Bootstrap' theme.

    Can anyone point me to a tutorial on how this might be done.

    Thank you.

    In the index.php file you will see this:

    XenForo_Application::initialize($fileDir . '/library', $fileDir);
    The first parameter is the configDir. The second is the rootDir.
