    I want to move a site I run from NING to WP. I dont want to shut down the NING site before I am ready with the WP site. HOw do I install, setup and test the new WP site and THEN point the domain to the new server.

  2. Are you going to use Multisite for this? It's trickier, sadly, and the BEST thing would be to install everythign locally, as yourdomain.loc (keep the domain name the same length, yes, I know).

    Install it, get it right, then export the DB, search/replace the .loc for .com (or whatever), and then upload all the files and the DB to your server.
