Site name - gurdipdev

This is a simple question. I use CICD (TeamCity/Octopus). I am a little confused on one thing. I want to have a dev site to test deployments, alongside my production site. Do I need a seperate site? I notice the deployment command has a --prod flag I believe.

Also, how does this work when the working directory on my CI gets checked out an deleted?

You don’t need a separate site, but depending on your requirements, it might or might not make sense to have one. It’s for you to decide.

Once the site is deployed, it doesn’t matter if your working directory is deleted.
