Site is in html currently – I want to hire developers to start working on some WP pages ON MY SITE not their home computor.
My solution was to create a Sub Domain, install WP in a folder “cart” there, have ftp access to that area for the developer. They could then have full access to WP but NOT to the rest of the site. Great idea, however:
WP wouldn’t install in the sub-domain “cart” but had to be installed in public_html/ (placed in seperate folder “cart”) however since this is “public” this gives the developer access to the Entire Site – MAJOR security risk! Also, I don’t want the WP pages to be visible on the internet (remember the site is HTML not WP)
There has to be a way to
1. Allow developer to access WP on my site but ONLY the WP folder without access to the full site.
2. Don’t allow WP pages to show on the internet just yet.
Got to be a way, how can I accomplish this?
