Installing WordPress but not to a live URL


#1

I have a website at another host. I want to start over at Dreamhost and use Wordpress, but I want to other site to stay up until the new one is ready. I want to use the same URL. So I need to create a dummy site that I can go live with when its ready. What should I put in the One-Click “install to” dialog box?

One of the more common questions on this forum by the way :wink:
