I have a client that has an existing static HTML site and wants to change over to a WordPress powered site. The existing site needs to stay in operation until the new site is ready. I have searched but I have only been able to find info on MOVING a WordPress installation. I want to set up the WordPress installation on my server and input all the content etc, before changing the name servers from the old server to the new server.
I can set up the hosting account and database and install WordPress without having a domain name, but is it possible then to access the WordPress installation - and if so how?
