I’m using MAMP to develop a WordPress site in localhost before i uploaded to a public server. I have it almost ready but I would like to copy or clone all i have in another folder in my htdocs from MAMP so i can run some other tests in that copy of the site without breaking up all i have done. Plus i need a copy of the site to translate it to another language.
So what i did is export all content from the site in xml and also make a copy of my data base.
But now i wonder… when I set up the new site (i. e. the copy of the original) in another folder can I use a new name for the database with new table prefixes and then import the old database? Or the new database must have the same name or table prefixes as the original one?
I sorry if I’m asking something thats very obvious for you guys but this is my first time with wordpress.
Thank you very much.
