Hi,
My store uses Opencart 1.5.5.1 (let's call it mylivestore.com)
I want to move to Opencart 3.0.3.2

Would it be safe to install 3.0.3.2 on the same web server as my live 1.5.5.1 store?

My idea is to:
1) Build a new version of the store based on 3.0.3.2 with a temporary domain name (mytempstore.com)
2) Copy some data to it and test
3) When passed testing, migrate all data
4) Switch to using the 3.0.3.2 store :
4a) Change domain name of 3.0.3.2 store from mytempstore.com to mylivestore.com
4b) Change web server settings to point mylivestore.com to the directory for the OC3 installation.

Does this seem like a good plan ?
Are there any risks my plan will screw up mylivestore.com while I work on the OC3 version?
Would it be better to build it on a different web server?
Are there any other issues I should consider?
Thanks very much for any advice you can give ! :)
Cheers

Sure, I had several Shops on one Server, each one in it's own subdirectory,
and working with it's own Database. I just use NO subdomain linking, but
call them like: yourshop / shop/ - yourshop / cart/ - e.t.c.

I have virtually every version running that way on the same server, no problem.

Thanks for your help letxobnav and IP_Cam !
I will go ahead and install OC3 on the same webserver.
