Hi guys, I am trialing a workaround for temporary URLs by creating a subdomain on a primary Virtualmin virtual server (not a sub server). This allows me to keep the URL a subdomain of the website owners existing website (which in this case is on Wix). The intention is to dump wix completely replacing it with a new wordpress website on Virtualmin.
So below is the illustration
Current domain and website with Wix (let's call it wix.com)
so i figured, why not create a Virtualmin>virtual Server called website.wix.com and add a DNS A record via Wix DNS for it
website.wix.com A-record 123.45.678.9 (my Virtualmin VPS)
Create a new virtualmin virtual server as a primary server but name=subdomain
Virtualmin>Create Virtual Server (where name = website.wix.com)
DNS resolves no problems
Install Wordpress...virtualmin scripts>wordpress = ok
Now the owner of the Virtual Server can edit the WordPress website for development purposes until they are ready to go live with it
Once ready to go live:
1. change Virtualmin Virtual Server (website.wix.com) to website.com
2. change Wix DNS A record for wix.com to website.com Virtualmin VPS IP address
3. Delete Wix account
Ok, can we rename Virtualmin Virtual Servers?
https://website.wix.com becomes https://website.com OR
Do I need to create a new Virtualmin Virtual server (website.com) and move WordPress? OR
Would i be best to completely setup the Virtualmin Virtual server (website.wix.com) with all functionality, then perform a "Virtualmin Virtual Server" migration from website.wix.com to website.com? This seems like an attractive idea but a simple rename would be far easier to do wouldnt it? If a rename is possible, can Virtualmin also automatically "move Wordpress" in that step?
