Next week my client will buy licenses for the apps we use on the site, including a premium plan. I need some help with the following:
1) if I make a copy of the site thus far and transfer ownership, I can keep on developing on my own copy without interfering the 'live' site but, as I read in a post from Andreas, I then need to hand copy every piece of code and page across domains, thereby probably losing all the ID´s and having to change the code. Also, I would have to manually enter all DB-changes. That´s a lot of extra work, but at least you can keep a development copy and a live copy separated
2) not make a copy and transfer site as is. Then, during development, if I want to change anything on a page (code or layout) I duplicate the page, hide it from menu, do my stuff until it works and then delete old page and rename copied page to name of deleted page.
This would at least give me the options of working with the Sandbox/Live DB.
I am more inclined to option 2, but maybe somebody has figured out a third possibility. Anyone that has been there before have any answers, before I make a horrible error?
PS I need testing on the Live version because some parts of WIx Code do not run in Preview Mode.
Any help would be highly appreciated.
