    Hi, jchristfjell, & welcomme! What I do is to put WordPress in its own separate folder, ie, public_html/wordpress. Then you can reach the folder by typing:
    http://www.hamarfrikirke.no/wordpress . When you’re ready for the old site to become the new one, just open index.php & point wp-blogheader.php to the wordpress folder. I’d also delete the WordPress files & folders in the root, once you’ve moved any user generated content (ie, the uploads folder) to the proper location under the wordpress folder.

    Alternatively, you could install a webserver on your local machine & build your site there, but that can take a little more technical know-how to get that sort of install up & running. There are plugins to help w/that, ie, Duplicator, but when things go wrong, they *really* go wrong lol. Either way works, & it really depends on what you feel most comfortable with.
