Setting up local development environment on Mac for existing site
I run a WordPress blog site that I’d like to redevelop using a StudioPress Genesis child theme. I don’t want to take the site down, so I’d like to do this with a local WordPress install on my iMac. I have used MAMP to get a clean local WP install. However, I don’t want to lose all my old content, comments, images, etc. when I go live. Is a clean local WP install the best approach, or should I be working on a local copy of my existing site? If I need a local copy, can someone help me set that up? I’ve seen Test Driving WordPress and Installing WordPress Locally on Your Mac With MAMP, but I could use a little help connecting all the dots. Thanks!
