    hello!
    I’ve only done sites on wordpress that are brand new. I have a client who already has an existing site and I want to create her new site in wordpress but how do I go about making the site without affecting her existing site until the one I create is completely finished. Any advice would be amazing!

    I normally develop the new site in a wp folder and then just follow these steps to assign the wp folder as the root folder.

    Dear Guav,

    You have two options over here.

    1. Develop the wordpress installation on your own web host (if you already have one or are able to afford it )
    2. If you are using windows go for wamp, to develop it on your local system and thereafter transfer it.

    Regards,
    Marvel
