I would like to set up a System where I can clone a live website and work on it locally and then when I'm satisfied and the changes are approved, I can send or sync those changes with the live site. I'm currently watching gitHub tutorials, but I'm not sure if I'm on the right track.


To make changes in live site with local install you need to setup a synchronization system. which synchronize static files and database files. You can use Git for version control.

Here is a great article for Sync A Local and A Remote WordPress Blog using version control.


Consider using a WordPress deployment system, such as Mark Jaquith's WP Stack.
