      Good question. I’m trying this out myself this weekend. I’ll post results here. I’m thinking if you were just making changes and adjustments to the theme, it would be as simple as copying the files to the public_html folder on the web. However, if you had data (posts) you would have to somehow setup the mysql… hmm. I’ll let you know how it goes. – Mike
