Where do you build your Joomla website, when you already have a live website? You could build the Joomla site locally, but this can be problematic and doesn’t allow an outsider to access the development site. You could setup a second web hosting account, but this costs money. Or you could build the new site inside a sub-folder of your existing site and move everything when you’re ready to change. That’s a popular approach, but what is the right way to move the files? This video tutorial demonstrates our recommended procedure.
