First off, THANK YOU, RICK for the Backup Buddy webinar. I finally finished watching the whole session, and it was a tremendous help!
Some questions for Rick:
In the webinar you mentioned that, when you create a new lesson, you clone your site and migrate it to a subdomain. I assume that's so you can create the lesson pages out of public view.
1)Do you migrate your entire site, or just a group of pages that hold a previous lesson's content? If it's just a group of pages, how do you tell Backup Buddy which ones to clone - AND - how do you migrate a group of new pages into an existing live site w/ out overwriting the entire site.
2) When you're ready to launch the new lesson, do you migrate its pages back to the live site? Looking at your lessons, they appear to be pages / sub-pages of your site, not separate sub-domain websites.
Thank you! I see how Backup Buddy will be a great tool for me.

Got it. So when you're done creating the new lesson and want to migrate the new version back to the "live" site, do you just run the migration procedure in reverse (migrate sub-domain version to primary domain)? Or is there another procedure that should be followed?
Thanks again. Really appreciate the help.

I think maybe I misunderstand your question. I never migrate back from a newer lesson to an old lesson. All of the lesson sites are live sites. What I meant to say was that when I create the site I am going to demonstrate the lesson on I clone the prior lesson's site and create a new site for the current lesson from it.
I just signed up for your live Q&A session tomorrow morning. Maybe easier to talk thru. Look forward to meeting you there.
I was imagining you'd clone your whole main site (byobwebsite.com). That way you could migrate it over to a sub-domain, use a previous lesson as a template for the new lesson, and populate the sub-domain version with the new lesson (out of public view).
When you finish creating the new lesson, you'd migrate the whole thing (as in, all the pages) back to the primary domain.
Maybe I'm misunderstanding the process.
End of the day, I'd like to understand how to use Backup Buddy to make changes / additions to my site out of public view, then migrate the new & improved version back to the primary domain.
That is, work on the improvements in "sandbox.inboundinfocus.com" then unveil them at inboundinfocus.com.
