Is it possible to install cmsb with a temporary url and point the domainname to the website/server at a later stage ?  I want to keep the old website online until I finish the new one, when finished I need to point the domainname to the server by changing the nameserver settings.

I'm working on this url for now:     >>>  which should eventually become:

So is there anything i should pay special attention to please??

Hi Koen,

Tim's got it right, and also, you can create a separate settings file for your development/staging environment.  See cmsb/data/how_to_use_settings_files.txt for more information.

We often have a local development environment where we test and develop and then upload the files to the live server, and CMSB is designed to allow you to easily do that without having to change files every time.

Hope that helps, let me know any questions!
