I will also be showing how to create a subdomain to host a test site and then very very quickly make the site live.

Great topic - shared hosting can be really difficult when the defaults are inappropriate. On my first Backdrop installation I had a problem with clean URLs - a revised htaccess file solved it.  In addition, my shared hosting puts the php.ini in the wrong location, so my site was actually trying to run on PHP 5.4 and not 7.4!
