    I am obviously new to cPanel and for a week I have tried to find a way to save pages from my site WITHOUT them going live AND saving them in such a way that I can still view my changes as they will appear when they DO go live.
    I have contacted support from my host and cPanel, I have searched these forums and I cannot find an answer to this question. My changes need to be approved and my boss isn't able to do that without seeing the actual page as it will appear to the public, any ideas?:confused:

    The webserver will display the index file in your public_html directory. So just place one index file and the public will be able to view that only. You can navigate to other pages.

    You don't need a live site to view the changes, you can just upload the contents of your site in your cPanel account and view them from the temporary URL facility available on cPanel servers.

    http://xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx/~username

    where 'xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx' is your hosting server's IP and 'username' is the cPanel username of your account. You can extend this URL to view any file like.

    http://xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx/~username/path/to/file.html

    path being a subfolder of public_html.

    Make a subdomain on your account, say dev.domain.tld, and .htaccess/password protect it in cPanel. Make a copy of your live site there, then only those who know the user/pass can see the development site. If you boss approves, then you can either just copy the files over to the live site or merge the changes.
