If you’re hosted with BigScoots, please add [email protected] as a collaborator with “Full” access (instructions here).
All Other Hosts
- Please provide us with cPanel access
- Please provide us with FTP or SFTP access to both your live site and staging site.
- Please ask your host to create a staging environment environment for us. We’ll use it for our technical audit, as well as building and testing your new theme. A few tips:
- They can exclude the wp-content/uploads directory which will drastically reduce the storage requirements. We’ll use BE Media from Production to reference the live site’s media.
- We recommend enabling basic authentication so the staging site is not indexed. If possible, set the username and password to “dev” (we don’t need a complicated password since we’re just blocking Google from indexing).
- If possible, please provide me with SSH access using this public key. We’ll often need wp cli to run custom data migrations.
