How to upload local version of WP site to hosted account (3 posts)

    I am currently using WordPress to re-do a currently published website, which I designed in Frontpage.

    I am using a local version of WordPress to do the re-design ('Wordpress For Windows' - used MS Webmatrix to install a local version of WP to my computer HD). I don't know much about the technicals. Assume folks here will know what I'm talking about!

    When the local WP version of the site is completed, I assume I will be able to upload it to my current hosting account, to replace the current FP website using the same URL. Is this a straightforward process?

    Just to be safe, I would like to keep my current FP version of the site, until I can see that the new WP-based one is working properly in all aspects. To do this, would I migrate the current site to a subdomain, then upload the local WP version of the site to the vacated URL? Is that a difficult process? If not, could someone please describe the steps involved?

    Thank you.

    Cheers
    Ross

    Yes, saw that esmi. Was hoping it would be a little less complicated uploading a locally hosted WP site...seems not. Thanks anyway.

    Cheers
