I am trying to find a workflow to deploy and work on new wordpress sites directly on the server with no use of Xamp, Wamp etc.
I am currently a 5 site reseller Plesk 12 user, meaning I can setup up to 5 domains. On the default domain I can preview anything I install (in my case trying wordpress) cause it is put on the httpdocs folder and the address is resolved from plesk.
When I create new domains, e.g. MyNewSite domain name, it creates a new folder with tha same name in the root folder and the preview cannot resolve it correctly, having as a result showing me the start page with no css or scripts loading. The new domains do not yet resolve to the server meaning I do not meddle with the dns before final production.
What is the most robust and effortless way to work in this situation, right on the server and hopefully visible on an external url that I can share to my clients to see the site’s progress?
