and save it to your hard drive. Make the changes, and then upload the new version to the server. When prompted to respond to the question: "Do you want to over-write the files on the server, click on the 'Yes' response.

the trouble is when i want to install joomla i cannot install it to my url i have to install it to click here .com/admin/admin because /admin is already in use! if that makes sense? is there a way to build it and keep the old one online?

Probably not, i'm afraid. When you install joomla it's done automatically server side and will work relative to it's install path.

So, keeping all URL's (old and new) will be almost impossble unless you install joomla to a different location, publish it then change all the URL's to suit match the old one's. Alternatively, do as above but put in redirects for the old URL's to the new locations under the joomla set-up. Hope that makes sense!
