Hi there, could anyone tell me what their process if for making changes to a live website. I only need to make some layout/colour changes to my site but don't want to do this whilst it is live without testing it first - how does everyone else manage this?

- Setup a local server with XAMPP ( )
- Install Opencart
- Copy the theme folder ( catalog/view/theme/YOUR_THEME ) Optiononal: rename the folder and change the name in header.tpl
- Make the style and layout changes
- Copy the changed theme to the live site
- If renamed, select it in store settings
