This is a more general question about WP website best practices.
An issue I encounter with many of my clients is maintaining two identical WP installs (staging and production). They insist on seeing changes before they go live. However, with WP's structure, that would involve constantly clearing and re-importing databases in addition to updating theme files.
Is there a simple answer out there that would allow me to maintain two identical WP websites with as few headaches as possible?
Thank you in advance for your help! Jake
