I'm trying to update my site from 1.2.0 to 1.2.4 but first I want to run a test upgrade.
I've read some relevant posts through the search function and found the following steps:
1.) Create a new database
2.) Upload Xenforo installation files onto the server*
3.) Specify database username and info in the Xenforo installer
4.) Install XF
5.) Import content from your forum over (if you want; in this case I don't need any content. Just styles and add-ons).
My question is this:
-*I created a new database in cPanel but do I just transfer the Xenforo installation files onto the server? I don't want to replace anything in my server files at all, especially since that's tied to the live site.
-How do I set up what URL the test site will be available at?
Thanks for your help.
