Improving a live site without loosing new database entries?
I have a live site that needs to be heavily modified (themes, plugins, etc.) with as little downtime as possible. I thought I could set up a testing server and then just overwrite the live site when finished, but this would provide a huge problem: I would loose any new database entries that have been made since I started testing on the local server. (Such as new users)
I would prefer to avoid taking the site down for ‘maintenance’ or having to replicate the improvements I made in the testing space. My question is this – how do I test improvements and then update the live site without loosing any new database entries?
