    Hi all,

    I have a website built on the localhost WordPress running on my PC. I want moving it to the domain hosted on Godaddy server. I already has install WordPress on the domain, say aaa.com. There is no website built on it YET.

    I'll follow;
    Moving WordPress
    http://codex.wordpress.org/Moving_WordPress

    I suppose the steps described on following section suitable for me? If it is NOT please advise which section of "Moving WordPress" shall I follow? Thanks

    Moving to a New Server:

    (Please shed me some light on following points)

    1)
    If You Don't Care If Your Old Blog Works
    (I suppose Old Blog refers to the website on the localhost WordPress ?)

    2)
    Download a copy of the main wordpress files from your OLD blog to your hard drive and edit wp-config.php to suit the new server.
    (I suppose this step can be omitted in my case because the OLD blog is already on my PC ? I just make the necessary changes on my PC)

    3)
    Go back to your OLD blog and go to Administration > Settings > General and change the url (both of them) to that of your new site.
    (I just do it on Dashboard of the localhost WordPress ?)

    4)
    Login on your server and go to phpmyadmin and export as file and save your database (but keep the old one just in case), upload this new database and the copy of the wordpress core files with the edited wp-config.php to your new server. That's it!
    (I suppose "your server" refers to the localhost WordPress, i.e. my PC ?)

    Please advise. Thanks in advance.

    1. You can follow the tutorial, it is very easy! i do use FileZilla!
    It will take you like 10 minutes by FTP, you could also zip-up all the files and upload them throug "godaddy file manager" ( less than a minute)!

    2. No, just open up the file you just exported with notepad, and DO a find and replace! example: find "http://localhost:31057/" replace with "http://yourdomain.com/"

    3. You can follow that tutorial, i think there is a step missing, after you create you database and user, you must to attach your user to your database and assign him all the privileges.

    4. You clearly did not get me, have you ever edited wp-config.php?

    Hi all,

    Hi all,

    This is my first time running FileZilla encountering difficulty to connect Godaddy' server.

    I'm trying to connect Godaddy's server moving WordPress blog from my PC to their server without success.
    Warning running Site Manager to connect Godaddy :
    Response: 220---------- Welcome to Pure-FTPd [privsep] [TLS] ----------
    Response: 220-You are user number 53 of 500 allowed.
    Response: 220-Local time is now 01:30. Server port: 21.

    Please advice
    1) Do I need install FileZilla on Godaddy's server?
    2) Which password shall I use? There are several passwords

    2. How do you think to export your database?? if you do it with phpmyadmin, it will output one single file!

    4. Are you sure you dont have to change your database name, i think godaddy prefixes all you databases, but i am not sure!

    @ Diogo,

    I'll make a test on my server here first making use of 2 VMs, both running Ubuntu 12.04 desktop 64 bit with WordPress 3.5.1 installed. The latter was download on WordPress website.

    virtualizer Oracle VirtualBox

    URL
    VM-1 192.168.0.201
    VM-2 192.168.0.202

    WordPress are installed on;
    VM-1
    /home/satimis/www/wordpress
    VM-2
    /home/satimis/www/wordpress
    respectively

    Both VM are now running and WordPress can be login on browser with;
    VM-1 192.168.0.201/wordpress/wp-admin/
    VM-2 192.168.0.202/wordpress/wp-admin/

    I'm now building a simple website on each of them. After completion I'll move the website on VM-2 to VM-1 running following steps.

    1)
    On VM-1 rename all folders on ~/wordpress/ as *.old

    2)
    On VM-2 run;
    $ rsync -a -r -v -e "ssh -l VM1-username" ~/path/to/wordpress/* 192.168.0.201:/home/satimis/www/wordpress/

    copying all relevant folders from VM2 to VM-1

    I'll do the reconfiguration concerned either before move or afterwards.

    3)
    Regarding database table I'll use "mydumper" (MySQL command. On older version known as mysqldumper) to do job.

    If successful I'll post the complete steps here. On Internet I found an article regarding upload mydumper to Godaddy and run it there.

    Step 1) and 2) above are easy to sort out on Godaddy website.

    Comment and suggestion are welcome. Thanks.

    Regards
    satimis
