My boss wants me to create a dev region on our current website's server that would have a different version of Wordpress than our current site that we could work on.
Basically we need a directory on the server that is wholly dedicated the dev work of our new beta site, that doesn't interfere with our current main site (http://www.convolutedconstruct.com). We'd like to set a up a directory such that we can view it on the web through www.convolutedconstruct.com/dev or (even better) dev.convolutedconstruct.com.
How can I set up such region on our server that uses a different version of Wordpress while not negatively interacting with our current site? If this sounds vague or you need more details please don't hesitate to ask.
