I want to start using WordPress for my clients.
I have done a lot of research on how to move a WordPress site to another server, and I believe I have that figured out. But I'm concerned about the database part.
My plan is to create a subdirectory for each client and then install WordPress into the subdirectory (via Fantastico). However, I'm concerned that this will overwrite the database of my own WordPress site.
I know I can have multiple installation in the same database by changing the wp-config file. But that won't work if I want to move the database and website to the clients hosting server later on.
I wonder if it would be better to install the client test site on a subdirectory of the clients hosting server, and then move it to the main directory after testing? I know this won't be good if the client doesn't pay, but it seems so much easier.
There just isn't enough detailed information on how to use WordPress for clients in a step by step setup and installation process description.
Can anybody share how they do it for their clients?
