I’m currently running a mature Concrete5 site on the root of my Bluehost account, but ultimately I want to migrate the site to WordPress to hand over to someone else. I did this years ago on another Bluehost account since deleted but I’m a bit rusty on the how to so hopefully someone familiar with Bluehost can point me in the right direction.
What’s the cleanest way to set up a new site on an existing server if the old site files and folders are spread out on the root. Is it just a new directory on root? I want the old site to remain live until its time to migrate.
I gather the scripted WP installs just install the site on root, so a manual install is the only way.
I want to create a test site URL such as wptest.mysite.com that points the new installation. Where do I do that?
After test and troubleshoot the domain name will point to the new site.
I believe you can run multiple sites on bluehost, but do they all work off the web root?
