    Hi, my work have asked me to create a new website using a paid for template. My question is how do I work on the new website whilst the old one is still working. As I have used wordpress in the past I know that I have to type in the URL of where the website will be installed. Does this mean that as I edit and publish that the new website will be live straight away or is there a way that I can have the old one run whilst working on the new site.

    Thanks,

    Craig.

    Install WordPress in a sub-folder of the existing domain.

    Ok thanks, and when it comes to making it LIVE what do I need to do?

    You could look at Moving_WordPress but allowing WordPress to take over the root domain whilst still in a sub-folder is far easier.
