    I am about to do my first project using a CMS. I will probably use WordPress.

    Though I need to set up a staging site before everything is uploaded and live.
    How does this work? When you upload the wordpress file via FTP, the wp-config.php file needs to be in the root directory…but I want to set up a staging folder within the root before the site goes live.

    Any suggestions on how this works?
    Thanks

    The "root" can be whatever you choose it to be!

    For example, you may want to do:

    http://www.your-domain.com/dev/

    The /dev/ folder would be your root.

    I am interested in this as well. Once you are done testing the site in the dev folder, how do you take it back to the live root folder? Thank you.
