    I question
    I have a site which is running
    I am in the process of remaking entire site .
    Problem is I need the original site run until new totally ready to be used.
    So my question is is there a way to setup another theme in parallel with original to work on ( using same database)
    IE http://www.website.com/dev/ where dev is sub-folder with the new site in progress

    I hope some one know how to do this...

    No - only test out a new theme. If you want new pages & plugins, you will need to install a second copy of WordPress as a new site - perhaps in a sub-folder.

    That is a problem
    I do not want create new database
    there are lot of stuff on old site..
    New theme change every thin width layout, so every page must be recreated
    and yet some internal stuff must be preserved .
