I am wanting to do a complete redesign of my current site but I really don't want to put my visitors on hold while I do this. My question is what would be the best way instead of putting my main index in a subfolder and building from that subfolder? I would like to have it load my homepage on entering the url in the browser instead of a redirect to a subfolder. And building on my homeserver and then uploading will really be a headache changing paths and db variables. Any suggestions?
