    Is it possible to have a development installation in the background? So that I could make all changes there without risking my main blog? Would they both point to the same database, to make it easy to promote the dev, or would it be easier to have them running on two separate databases?

    Does anyone have any experience with this? How'd you handle it?

    Thanks,
    Len

    Two databases.
    If you want to use your existing db, export it and import it into the new blog.

    You can do this on your PC if you wanted to:
