[resolved] Duplicating to a sub folder of the same site (5 posts)

    I want to create a sand box duplicate for testing purposes in a sub folder of my current site.

    e.g. http://www.mysite.com/dev

    and I will have the sub domain dev.mysite.com point to this.

    I am hosting with godaddy...Can I just upload the installer and package to the subfolder and run it? Will this work?

    Thanks!

    Hey swaynevds4755,

    Technically it should work, however you will probably want to have two separate databases for each site if you plan to have multiple i.e one for production/development...

    Thanks. yes, this was my plan. copy the site to a sub folder and use a new target database. I'll let you know how it goes!

    Thanks for the prompt reply.
