    Help! Trying to upload my wordpress site i developed on my local machine thru webmatrix to my bluehost account. I uploaded all my files successfully, but cannot find the database file associated with the site. it shows up in my webmatrix interface, but doesn't show me a location, and when i search my machine, i can't find it! I can open the tables in webmatrix -- how can i get my site up and running??? (panic has set in!!) help is appreciated :)

    real quick -- spoke with bluehost and they had me export an xml file and import it to a new installation of wordpress on their servers. worked great, and everything is there. but in the file manager of my wordpress all the media files are present -- but in the dashboard of my site, the media library is empty (so everything looks funky) any thoughts???

    Check your Settings > Media and make sure your paths are correct.
