Best process for redesigning a wordpress site/creating a test site?
February 6, 2014 2:15 PM Subscribe
I taught myself how to build a wordpress website for our small business a few years ago and since our current platform (Platform Pro) is now defunct, I need to switch to a different platform and get all my plugins and wordpress up-do-date. What is the smartest way to do this?

Godaddy is not offering me tech help with this via phone, and a lot of what I've read online about this is confusing. I need a solution that is relatively easy. Do I need to hire someone to help me with this or can I do it myself? I've created a folder ("test") in my root folder and know how to install wordpress into that folder. I've also created a separate database. I have no idea how these two tie together, but what I have read online suggests I do these things.
If you know of a link with good instructions on doing this, that would be very helpful. If you have specific suggestions, please dumb it down for me b/c while I think I've done pretty well learning wordpress, this part seems really confusing (plus I find myself very nervous about doing anything in fear that I will screw up our current site).
Thanks for your tips!
