[resolved] Best method for Developing (3 posts)

    Hi - trying to figure out the best way to install WordPress for developing a theme before site launch.

    Is it possible to move WP from a sub directory to the root without creating database issues once the site is ready to launch?

    I have tried using MAMP and developing using a localhost setup but there are too many glitches I'm experiencing making it nearly impossible to use.

    thanks

    Hi,

    This may help:

    It took me awhile to figure out what works best for me for development. I use a localhost setup and for awhile, manually did my own process that was pretty similar to Bill Erickson's: http://www.billerickson.net/migrating-wordpress-websites/

    Hope that helps!
