Let's start by setting up a local web server. We will use this to make a local installation of WordPress MU, which will serve as a private testing ground.
It is a good idea to have a local copy of your site. It lets you test things quickly and easily and ensures that should any of your edits go wrong, nobody else will see. Editing your site while it is live can annoy your visitors, especially if the edits don't work as expected on the first attempt. Testing on a private server minimizes the risk of any unnecessary downtime. If you don't want to run a test server, skip to the Time for action - working with cPanel section.
