Install a mirror wordpress blog using same database

  • Hi

    I have a website running on wordpress with a forum and almost 400 registered users.
    I’m looking to upgrade my blog theme, but I wanted to full test it and customizing it in the background and to preserve all the info.

    • Is possible to install wordpress in a subdirectory and do all the testing there using the same database and when everything is ok just replace the folders on the location of the actual website? to allow a overnight upgrade?

    No. The site’s url is stored in the database. So your only other option is to effectively clone the database and change the site urls. See Moving_WordPress.
