I’m about to transition my site (taylorchasewhite.com to use Frontity.
I don’t feel comfortable with the current “Deployment” write up–it seems like it just discusses how to build the production level deployment code, but doesn’t talk about the high-level steps involved in modifying your current web server to solely use the new Frontity React code we created.
What I’d like to do (which I imagine is common) is to:
- Build the code to serve on my server (already documented).
- Keep my current CMS (wordpress) code hosted on my server where it’s at.
- Deprecate / hide all of the “old” views that show my site before I switched to Frontity.
- Put my new Frontity code on the server such that each URL that previously pointed to the “old” site taylorchasewhite.com/category/blog now gets intercepted / displayed by Frontity.
I apologize if that’s all well documented, but I can’t seem to find much detail here.
For what it’s worth, I’m using BlueHost, so I also wouldn’t mind if more hosting providers have their detail added here for transition purposes
