    Typically I would set up a folder something like this : I use absolute URLs, so all the links would be temporary. When it came time to go live I would edit all the links to match the final URL.

    I know if I used relative URLs I could just do the links once and transfer with no editing, but from what I understand relative URLs aren’t recommended.

    Is there a better way to go about this?

    Also, I’ve seen some beta sites with a folder in front of the URL, like this:

    How is that set up?

    Thanks in advance.


    Can’t answer your first question since I set up a vhost for every project, so the absolute URLs are already correct in development.

    But the ‘folder’ in front of the URL is actually a subdomain, it can link to a totally different server address if you want it to.


    How do you go about setting up the vhost?
