When my site goes into production I'd like to set up a second version of the site for testing purposes. I haven't done this before and would appreciate your comments.
Here's what I think I should do:
- Create a "test" directory.
- Install a fresh instance of WP into that directory.
- Point it at the same MySQL database as the production site.
The test site would be used ONLY for changes to the site's appearance and not to modify anything in the database. Is sharing a database...
Thanks in advance for your comments.
