I know that this topic has been extensively covered, so I apologise for posting again.
I need to develop a new WordPress site for a friend who already has a existing static (non-Wordpress) website. They are looking to move to a new Web Host for the new WordPress site.
What I need to know is what is the best way to host the WordPress site while I develop it for the client?
Should I develop it locally using phpMyAdmin and then install it on the new host when it is ready?
Should I get the client to move their site to the new host, and then develop the WordPress site on a sub-directory (www.newsite.com/wordpress/)?
or, is there a better way that anyone can recommend?
Any help will be appreciated.
