Not sure which forum to ask this question though. Well, I have absolutely zero knowledge in SSH and still learning PHP (very basic knowledge). My website is almost done and needed to be uploaded for a test as it involves payment transaction and some membership system. I've never done this before. Would you please please guide me (in details)in how to:
Upload the test site without using the real live URL. Should I go ahead and create some link on cPanel like www.mysitename.com/testsite and then upload the test file into that folder? How do you usually do it?
I'm with JustHost at the moment, I've seen so many guys talking about SSH to gain access to privilege setting of the website but with JustHost you have to pay for it in order to create this thing. Does every web designer have to know SSH all these as I'm so thrilled and discouraged to see how complicated it is?
Once the real contents have been uploaded on the website (www.mysitename.com), how could I be able to update the website and database without losing the current up and running live data? My website needs some constantly changing in site contents and also in database. How could I merge the live database with the new one while visitors still using the database?
Thank you very much in advance for your reply.
