    1. make the move in cpanel, (domain:
    2. keep the original Joomla as a backup, (domain
    3. create a sandbox where changes can be made and previewed before being promoted to the main domain)?

    Thank you.

    Hello @Riverheadlibrary

    Because of the potential differences in CMS systems how you make the move may be a more complicated question than we're able to answer, this is something the people at wix should be able to assist you with.

    This portion should be fairly simple, you'd just need to restore a backup of the old site to a subdomain like you've listed here.

    A lot of people use a demo.domain.tld subdomain to do this but ultimately it'd require an additional copy of the new site though your provider may have a way to do this which is easier than manually doing it.
