Hello everyone! This month's WP Question comes from a Salesforce implementer who was asking me some WordPress questions earlier today.
"What is the best way to set up a testing site if you are working with a site that is already live?"
I look forward to your answers!
I like to keep it simple.
Choose hosting that comes with a staging server. For example Siteground or WP Engine. Then you can copy the site to the staging server, make and test your changes, and publish it when ready. See https://www.siteground.com/tutorials/staging/ - it's easy enough.
If I was coding with others in a team, would probably need a more complex routine with a Bit of a bucket and an old git.
