Website Rebuild

I'm considering a rebuild of my website and want to know where I would build it, and how I would "go live" with it when I am ready?

 

Right now, I have a site on my public_html folder, and a forum on a subdomain. I want to build and test a new site - either joomla or mambo, to bridge to my smf forum, and then go live with the new site, without disrupting the forum. In other words, I want this to be as seamless as possible from the viewer's standpoint - go to bed one night, see one site, wake up the next, see the other - same domains and subdomains...

 

how do I do this?

I have a reseller account, hence usually just set it up on another account, test it, and then swap it over when needed.

 

To do it on the same account, I'd install the new site in a directory, set the .htaccess to block anyone else from going in that directory, and test it until you're happy. You can then update the .htaccess to swap access for everyone else when you want them to see the new pages.

how do you set/unset htaccess? Also, a new directory in publi_html? Here's what's current: site structure on public_html, to which I would add a folder "new-site" and install the new site...

 

right now a new folder equals a new subdomain - which I don't want. I'm still not clear about the process.
