I am new to WordPress. I have taken over as admin for an established site...and do not want to screw it up! I installed BUpBuddy, and found that making regular backups to my Dropbox account is easily implemented. My website admin experience is with MS Frontpage and Expressions......and I never really understood what I was doing with them....but somehow managed my site successfully for many years.
To my question........ I liked being able to make changes to my site by FIRST making changes on my local copy of the site, and THEN publishing the changes to the server........when I had it right. Being new to WordPress, even though I am backing up, I am afraid of making changes directly on the hosting server. I am wondering how to make changes on my local computer and then "update" the actual web site with the changes. I am wondering if using Backup Buddy's free tools for migration is the way to do this, or is there another way that I am overlooking?...Or am I totally all wet?
Any suggestions / guidance will be greatly appreciated
