    hi folks. i've been recommended 2 ways to upload my wordpress to my hosting company so people can access it from the forum and help me, but that it is not for everyone to see as i'm still working on it. the first suggestion was to put a code in the header of my template asking for password when people want to view the site. the only thing is i've no idea how or where to create the password. can anybody help? the second idea is to upload it as a folder in my current website & give my hosting password to access it? is this not a bit tricky? very new to all this web stuff & first time wordpresser so go easy on me. cheers. elizabeth

    you can password the folder wordpress is installed in from your hosting control panel
    if you can't find this option, I'm sure your host can help

    thanks samuel. have just been on to the hosting company. they told me i can use the temporary url for people to navigate to my wordpress folder. as an example they told me to navigate to the readme.html using this temporary url & this worked fine. how do i access the whole site though? i can't bring up the rest of the site. the hosting company said it would be fine if everything was properly configured.
