From the goo thesaurus: https://dictionary.goo.ne.jp/thsrs/9515/meaning/m0u/試みる/

「試みる」は、実際にあたってできるかどうかやってみる意だが、「試す」は、うまくいくか、よいか悪いか、本当かどうかの確認をする意が強い

試みる means to actually see if you can do something or you can’t by trying, 試す means to see if something goes well, to see if it’s good or bad, to see if it’s true or not, etc.

If you look at the synonyms here on WK, that becomes clearer too.

Yes, like Leebo said.

An example could be that you will attempt to set up a homepage. This is 試みる (see if you can do it by trying).
Once you’ve signed up, you want to test different templates. This is 試す (test the templates to see if it looks good or bad).
