Hello,

I want to use a spare domain to set up the Magento admin interface and database before going live with an existing domain.

Is that possible?

Thanks in advance,

Justin.

What I have done in the past is just install it again on the new domain and then update the database with all the new info and upload the files that were worked on.

Would this work for you? Would you know how to do this?

Yes, I think you are right as there are probably too many settings to successfully swap out the base store and admin section.

So, I will use a sub-domain that will be kept permanently for admin tasks:

1. admin.mydomain.com - will be the repository/base store.
2. admin.mydomain.com/admin - will be the admin interface.

I will then:

3. Disable products from appearing in the root store.
4. Set up separate stores and websites using sub-directories.

Is this the best way of achieving a stable code base without using our main domain? We currently use our our main domain and it can’t be out of action for any period of time.

Cheers,

J.
