I have been asked to make some changes to an existing Website, and can easily do so.
However, I would very much like to make the changes and test them on my local computer before Deploying back to the production environment.
Can anyone point me to the steps to:
a) import the website from the production environment to my development environment (I have username, pw),
b) when ready, apply the changes to the production environment in a safe manner
In a related manner, I tried "Open Website", chose FTP, but don't know the significance of "Passive Mode", and whether or not to convert from .NET 2.0 to .NET 3.5
After opening the Website, I immediately closed it, and then tried researching this subject in one of my books -- to no avail; hence why I'm here!
Thanks in advance for any assistance you can lend,
