I have a live WP site at http://www.example.com/site1
I am using a custom theme heavily modified and the person I'm working with wants to use a new theme that will require some modification before use and will also require some content changes. Because the site is live and I need to make changes I cannot just switch themes.
I'm *thinking* I need to make a second copy of the site, including the DB at: http://www.example.com/site2 as well as make a second DB, then do all my work there. Once I'm done make that live.
What are your thoughts on this? How exactly do I go about doing this?
