Hi: Can i use my temp URL to test PHP pages before going live or do i need to create another folder? You have everything else so i imagine there is a way and i'm just not seeing it.
As always, thanks for your response to my questions.

Hi Brenda,

Thanks for contacting us. I'm more than happy to assist you. You can use your Temp URL to test php pages. You do not need to create a folder to do so.

The only issue that could arise is if you used absolute paths in your coding to links. If you use domain specific links in the code, those will not work.

Here's an article on testing your website using the Temp URL:

I hope this helps! If you need further assistance please feel free to contact us.
