    I want to replace an existing web site with a wordpress cms. How do I manage to work and refine the design of the Wp site without experimenting down times in the old one. WP doesen't work if I change the index.php file name.

    You are correct, it doesn't work if you do that. So, don't do that. Seems simple enough, really.

    If you want to install it in a subdirectory to test with, then do that instead.

    I got the same problem (kinda) - but the orginal site I am replacing is not a php site, just html.

    I have wordpress installed, but I need to be able to view the wordpress home (just me) while working on it, I can access the admin section and posts using custom permalinks.

    is there anyway to set htaccess not to redirect the index.php to /

    without breaking wordpress while I work on it
