Hello, and thanks for your time. I’m having trouble setting up a wordpress test site on a mirror domain, and am not sure I fully understand the function of a mirror domain.
I have a domain, videogamereligion.com and a mirror domain, videogamereligion.dreamhosters.com for my wordpress installation. However, I thought that I could make changes at the dreamhosters address and it wouldn’t change on the videogamereligion.com site. However, this is not the case.
I used the wordpress plugin, duplicator, to copy my site files and database over to videogamereligion.com from a local offline MAMP install.
I also tried following this wiki article: http://wiki.dreamhost.com/Move_WordPress_to_DreamHost and this one and this one: http://wiki.dreamhost.com/Mirror_Domain
However, when I make changes through the wordpress dashboard at the dreamhosters mirror, they show up immediately at the main website.
How can I use the mirror as a test site? Thank you for your help!
