I am presently using RapidWeaver to rebuild an old website that was originally produced using Apple iWeb.
My strategy is to produce an essentially identical website using a separate URL name, then when everything looks happy, change the temporary name to the original name and load it onto the URL location the first website now resides at. I realize I will likely need to do a bunch of re-directs etc, but that is manageable.
My question is about general strategy.
Can you simply duplicate a website and republish it with a different name or would you instead change the name publishing credentials of the test site and re-publish using the original website FTP credentials?
