I am working on a new version of a web site. As the current version is being used daily I can’t just publish over the top of it, so I’ve been using another domain name I had hanging around.
Problem is, when I do publish it live, there are going to be a lot of url references that will be incorrect. I’m using Total CMS for the blog, so that will be all messed up as it will be referencing the wrong locations and the htaccess file that Total CMS requires some edits of will need changing. And who knows what else, as there are various references to mp3 files and pdfs.
So what do you experts recommend. How do you get around this problem as you must be doing new versions of sites all the time?
Any advice much appreciated.
