I am going to build an old static into a new SS site for a client of mine but i have not done this yet while keeping the current site live. I was wondering if there would be any problems if i were to build the "published" site in a subdir and transfer it over into the root dir (overwriting/removing the previous content) once everything is complete.
Do i need to install sapphire to the root and have the SS site in a sub dir? Do i need to change any backend settings once the site is in the root? Is there a better way of going about thsi that i'm not aware of? Any advice on this would be greatly appreciated. The more detail, the better.
I'll be working on the template until I hear more. Thanks in advance!
EDIT: The reason for this is to have the client check the progress on the design remotely without disabling the current site, if anyone was confused...
