Help with installing WP as a staging site with subdomain

Reported by: Ming Owned by: JaimeV

We would like to create a Wordpress staging site with the subdomain When all looks good, we will swap our current site with this staging site. Could you help setting this up? We also will need access to this staging site via FTP. Could you give us some guidance in terms of credentials and ftp address? Thank you!

I think you should do this by first creating a new hosting order for the staging site with the name

You can establish ftp access to upload whatever files you need to there.

You can also create a new database and database user form within the control panel of the new hosting order if you need those.

That should get you started, when you are ready to switch between the two sites you can either switch your DNS settings and web configuration for both sites or import data rom the new site into the old site. I can give you more detailed instructions when you are ready for that step.

Replying to

We need to increase the "upload_max_file" to 20MB for It seems like we don't have access to change that via .htaccess. Could you help?

You can do this by cretaing a custom php.ini file in your include/php5/ folder. We have a guide that explains goes into more detail.

I've gone ahead and added the following lines to that file for you. Feel free to edit it.

upload_max_filesize = 20M
post_max_size = 20M
max_execution_time = 300
