Yeah, possibly a dumb question, but one I don't know the answer to. icon_wink.gif I'd like to create a test site so I can work on different themes and set everything up to make sure it all looks good before putting it on the main site, but I don't know the procedure. Could someone explain in laymens terms please?

Using Html, I can do all this, but doing it on Nuke is a different story. Still learning it all.

Thanks

You can do this a couple different ways. You will need 1 SQL database (name it something different than the one your current nuke site is using) then upload the nuke.sql into that new database, and then you can upload nuke into a new subdomain if you have one or just simply upload nuke into a new folder and choose a name for it. If you choose a folder the addy will look something like this: [ Register or login to view links on this board. ]

You can also do this with Fantastico or other autoinstaller program you may have in your webhost control panel.

My favorite way is to install a program like Apache2Triad on my computer at home and install nuke on the home computer. It is quicker and when you are done you can upload the finished product to an actual web server.
