I am looking for the fastest way possible to take a full localhost version of WordPress (using MAMP Pro and Sequel Pro to develop locally) to my server? I have found a WordPress plugin called "WordPress Duplicator" that I haven't tested yet, but I don't know if it's the fastest, pain free, and most efficient way of doing so?
I would like to develop my WordPress sites locally (so that I can work faster and also without WiFi when I'm on the go). So this would also include localhost updates, over time, to the server. And I suppose that it would also be vice versa, where I will want to take the full live site onto my localhost too. In essence, both should be in sync at all times, and I have my localhost folder inside Dropbox to help with multiple development workstations.
Should I also get into the practice of copying the localhost site to a dev subdomain such as http://dev.domain.com first before taking it to the live domain http://www.domain.com?
Thanks for your help!
Any guidance is greatly appreciated.
