I have a membership site created with cold fusion. It is hosted on the creators server. I wish to recreate the site using wordpress on my own hosting account.
I was told I would create the account and install wordpress and make the site there...and then change name servers. This is not working so well as I cannot access the wordpress site, only the cfm site.
I cannot have the site down for more than a few hours, so it will mean re-creating the site entirely and then turning it on.
What is the best way? Install it locally on my computer? I have a Mac, though I've not done this before.
What should I look for in a person who would know how to do this? A wordpress person? A webmaster? A designer (to help customize the site)? All of the above? Someone else?
Thanks for help. Thus far, I'm running into dead ends.
