    Hi Guys,

    I have wordpress installed locally. I am through with my website design, twenty eleven, and I want to upload it to godaddy live.
    Is there a way I can copy my finished site without moving the database too? If there is, which directory should I moved.

    A partner designed a website for me which I uploaded to godaddy without having to upload any database and it worked. This is exactly thesame thing I want to do but I am getting Error establishing a database connection

    Where is the database? Your live site has to be able to access it.

    The database is still on my localhost. Godaddy is taking so long to setup the database I created.

    Meanwhile, Can you please explain the technology behind uploading a site to go live without having to upload a database file into any database online. This was what a consultant did. They only gave me files to upload and nothing like setting up a database online. The site is actually live now.

    Given that most of your site's content is stored in your database, you cannot move a site without moving its database. If you do not have access to the original database, then all you can is install WordPress followed by the same plugins and themes but that's it. You'll have no content.
