I’m an absolute newbie. This is how far i’ve gotten.
own 3 domains.
all were registered on godaddy. all will be hosted on dreamhost. all will be wordpress real estate sites using a custom theme i bought from studiopress. since they will all be very similar in layout i want to build them all at the same time.
2 are brand new, so i’ll build and then start publishing the address for visitors.
the third one, domain3.com is currently active - and so i need to do a staging site until i’m ready to switch over.
Thats as far as i’ve gotten. I’ve created the staging.domain3.com and have uploaded my theme.
my FEAR is i have no UNDERSTANDING of how i will move the www.domain3.com over to start pointing to the new wordpress site once i’m ready. its currently being used on a $100/month rip-off real estate agent site.
i read this and it made no sense to me: “Copy Files over via shell acess”
also read:"rename dev subdomain directory to the name of the “live” site’s web directory, edit a couple of variables, in the config file, and “GO LIVE”
if this is correct can someone just TRANSLATE even further down to a real estate agent’s level.
