So, before I do upgrades or anything, I've added a subdomain with wordpress installed. (test.domain.com)
If I want to duplicate the environment at "domain.com" into "test.domain.com" what do I do?
I'm guessing all I need to do is
1) back-up "domain.com" and restore the back-up into "test.domain.com"
2) move all the plug-ins and themes (basically copy the folders as is).
Will this pretty much do it? Is there a way to easily dubplicate the environment so it mirrors real time? If not, I don't mind using a point in time test environment.
Also, I assume this is an adequate way to test out upgrades, patches, new themes, plugins, etc...
Sorry if this has been posted before but I couldn't find it. Thanks!!!!
