Replacing existing site w/new Wordpress site

From: Ethan
Sent on: Monday, November 16, 2009 12:29 PM

I'm an absentee member of your wordpress meetup group.? I'd love to come to the meetings but haven't been able to yet because of work.

I'm hoping someone from this group can point me in the right direction.? I've built a couple wordpress sites from scratch, however, now I need to create a new site that will replace an existing site.?

What is the best way to go about developing a new site while leaving the existing site up during the process?? Do I need to create the new site locally, then upload it to the server once it is completed?? If so, what are the steps involved in replacing an existing site with my locally developed site?? Also, if I create the new site locally how will I be able to get feedback from the client during the development process??

I'm sure this info exists somewhere online but I haven't been able to find it yet.? Thanks in advance,
