I've been rebuilding a corporate site on a separate test server. The current site is just static HTML pages, while the new one is of course built on WordPress. I'm getting ready to launch the new site, and I wanna make sure the transition is as smooth as possible, and that I don't screw anything up in the process!
The current site is on a typical shared hosting plan with InMotion, and the new site needs to be on the same server. I'm going to be moving the new site to the current server using the migration tool within the BackupBuddy plugin. That's the easy part. I'm worried about where I move it to. Do I just replace the current site files with the new one? Or do I upload the new site as an addon domain first?
I'm pretty lost, so any advice would be great!
