    WordCamp Denmark 2015Speaker: Torben Heikel Vinther

    December 7, 2015 — Det er nemt at installere og anvende WordPress i hverdagen. Du kan se ændringer med det samme, du klikker på opdater, og du kan skifte tema og tilføje plugins med et enkelt klik. Men du kan også se med det samme, når noget går HELT GALT, og dit website går i sort (eller hvidt), efter at du har installeret et tilsyneladende harmløst plugin.

    I dette oplæg viser jeg dig, hvordan du med fordel kan installere WordPress lokalt på din egen computer og nemt migrere det til dit webhotel ved hjælp af programmet DesktopServer. Jeg viser også, hvordan du kan synkronisere to WordPress-databaser ved hjælp af WP Migrate DB Pro.
