Use MS as development platform? (2 posts)

    I've worked on a couple Multi-site projects and I had an idea I need some clarification on...

    I want to install MS on my current setup to use as a development platform for a new theme, pages, posts, categories, custom post types... basically a completely different site... then flip that to the production site when I'm finished.

    My Plan:

    - Install MS
    - Setup beta.domain.com
    - Develop new site chock full of goodies
    - Set domain.com to archive.domain.com
    - Set beta.domain.com to domain.com

    Would this work? Or is there some other way I should go about doing it. I've done the whole "separate single install, back up database, transfer files...blah blah." That whole process drive me nuts, and there is always something that breaks.

    I was thinking this might be a faster, simpler solution. But I don't know if it'll work. Don't want to destroy my system. :)

    Any thoughts?

  2. Its not faster or simpler and still prone to breaking stuff. Currently there is no good consistently reliable method to pull out a single site as stand-alone.
