We have a Standard with Load Balancing license. Our scenario is that we are moving from DotNetNuke(DNN) to Sitefinity one website at a time.
1. Currently we have a site say www.mysite.com , live and being used. We are building a site in Sitefinity to replace this one wth the same domain name.
2. We want to register Sitefinity license to this domain when we go live. Will registering the domain with the license cause any problems to our current live site.
3. The main reason why we want to register the domain with the license before the final go lvie, is that we want to test out the set up (inlcuding load balancing) either in stagining or production by creating a subsite like www.mysite.com/subsite
4. Step 3 is the most intimidating & unknown step to me.
If I do create a subdomain i.e. set up the new sitefinity site as as subsite of our current live site, will that work?
If it does, is it as easy as moving it out and creating a top-level site in IIS when we are ready to go live?
How do I do it if I want to test out the entire site in staging.
I have gone thru the blog posts of Anton Hristov about using license files, etc but I was hoping to get specifc directions on how to do this.
I am sorry if Iam not being able to clearly put forth my question. Basically I want to test out Sitefinity website with a domain that is currently being used in live and cannot be taken down till we actually go live.
Your insight & help is much appreciated.
