Howdy thanks for helping this moderate newby out.
I’ve built a WordPress site locally, it works, looks as I want so far.
How do I move it to Dreamhost?. I’ve tried export/import. No luck. Fail on complete manual moving.
Obviously, the database is the issue.
If I clean out the Dreamhost Wordpress install completely (as in delete it) what is the sequence to building a new install that I can upload my local site to? How do I ensure the various database conventions all match? Do I need to manually edit the wp-config.php file every time or something? Does the import process edit the config file to point it to the sql databse on the Dreamhost server if that database is named something completely different?
Even now, when I think I atleast have a valid database running, I get this:
