    Hello- I have been runing WP locally using XAMPP, (Apache and MySQL), on my computer while tweaking WP to conform to the look of an existing website to which WP will be added. Are there any problems I need to know about before uploading WP to my host's server? Is it as "simple" as changing the path to my WP folder in the OPTIONS window of the Admin window, and then just uploading that folder to the appropriate place on my host's server, (assuming there has been a database created on that server with the same name/password, etc. that I have ben using locally?)---
    If the process requires considerably more than what I mentioned above, could someone please point me in the right direction, or maybe recomend a tutorial on this subject?
    Thanks, DB!!!!!

    also see at the bottom or the guide the reference to Podz guides if you have issues with changing URLs etc which is really helpful
