Updating a live file

Your post

     I have just uploaded my database file to filemaker server 13 and this is my first filemaker application that I have developed.

     I am now trying to understand how to make changes (updates, new functionality, etc.) to my "live" file.  Is there a way to work on a copy of the database file to continue development and then just upload the scripts and layouts?  Are there "best practices" for continuing development of a solution?  

     It seems as if I have to work on the "live" database or bring it down (kick all the users off) and then do my development.  This is not very efficient if I need to make major changes that take weeks to develop.  I am sure I am missing something here.

     Thanks in advance for any help!
