Best way rebuild site using a new theme & keeping original site live? (2 posts)

    I have searched the forum and found a similar subject as that I entered above but my situation is a little more unique. The current theme I've had running for about 5 years is outdated and during this time we have tried out probably over 50 different plugins and eventually cut down to 23. Now the site is getting 7K+ visitors a day and every time we try and launch the new site the server crashes. I have recently tweaked W3 Total Cache to work with a CDN to try and offset this.

    Any advice on this matter before we try again? Is it best to start with a fresh new wordpress install that references a new database and implement the latest plugins? If we do this does this mean everything has to be re-cached so even the CDN's could not be helpful?

    Greatly appreciate any input you guys have on this matter!

    AS you say that the website is 5 years and out dated that means that you must have old wordpress and plugins you are using must be old as well so they all will need to be updated.

    Have checked what version wordpress you using.
