I have a site hosted with DreamHost that I designed using adobe muse: www.rosegreenstein.com
I would now like to redesign it using wordpress with a theme that I have bought. I would like to keep my existing site up and running while I work on the new wordpress version of it.
As a graphic designer, I have only limited experience with all of this. A few months ago I designed a site for a customer. I installed wordpress on my local machine and was eventually able to get it up and running, (on their previously purchased godaddy hosting) but godaddy had to do a lot of stuff to get it working, of which I have no idea how to replicate.
So I would like to design my new site NOT on my local machine. I have been looking through this forum and came across these links, but I’m not 100% they are applicable to me, since it was for a site being migrated from another host:
Since this is not my area of expertise, I need a little hand holding. Do I create a mirrored site? A test site? Any and all help will be much appreciated. And since I currently do not have a fulltime job, I am hoping to not have to pay extra money for the dreampress hosting…
Thanks very much,
