I would like to update my prestashop 1.6 to the latest version 1.7.

In order to do this without taking down my existing site, I am told I need to have room for a subdomain. Is there someplace I can go to learn exactly what must be done to facilitate this?

Thank you! That was easy! Next step in upgrading I am told is to make sure I have an empty database available. You don't happen to have another nifty link I can follow with easy directions for that task by any chance, do you? I also need to verify that the PHP version is compatible with the latest version of PrestaShop. Can I assume that to be true? I am preparing to migrate from Prestashop 1.6 to 1.7 as recommended by Prestashop's technical support. 

Here's our guide to creating a new database in cPanel. As long as you're using the latest PHP version, you should be fine.
