Hi I have a problem that I'm not sure is the same or different to the one listed here. I am building a new wordpress site for a nonprofit, and want to build it directly online so that I can easily share it with some of the committee members for feedback (but not visible to everone yet).
I have previously been developing (or really just testing out stuff) in a local development environment on my desktop machine. I now want to build a new site online that is not publicly available.
It will also have a temporary domain name that I'll change later to the nonprofit's registered domain name. That part seems fairly straight forward and just require a high degree of attention to detail when making the change.
The part I am stuck on is getting the site set up in a private space online. I took lakerat's advice and searched the DH wiki for references to the .htaccess file but didn't seem to find what I needed. Are there some other keywords I should be looking for in conjunction with .htaccess?
Once I get the site up there, I will need to grant access to a few people. Do I do that via the wp admin panel or through DH?
I'm pretty clueless with site hosting as my only other sites have been wp.com or otherwise the hosting part was managed by someone else. I think it's time to learn...
Thanks in advance for any suggestions!
