Q: moving wordpress from localhost to dreamhost

wordpress

#1

Hello everyone,
I purchased a shared server, installed WP but could not upload and install theme.

I am also running wordpress site on my laptop using wamp server, I also installed the plugins I needed, did several custom modification and also changed the php version on my dream host from 5.3 to 5.4 so it would be the same as the version on wampserver .

  1. Is there any way of moving my site from my laptop to DH servers using filezilla?
  2. what steps should I make to get the site work same as on wamp?

My plan is:

  1. Create new database on DH, importing the .sql file from phpmyadmin on my computer.
  2. copy the entire wordpress folder from www folder on wamp
  3. change and configure the wp-config.php to the new data including: DB_NAME, DB_USER, DB_PASSWORD and DB_HOST.

Did I miss something? Will it work?

That should be all you need to do, correct :slight_smile:

You MAY need to search/replace post content to change it from localhost to domain.com
