    How hard is it to move a local development site to a live site?

    Do you only have to do a search and replace on the urls in the database?

    I have been using this http://interconnectit.com/124/search-and-replace-for-wordpress-databases/
    for search and replace on databases,
    based on a recommendation in this forum.

    This is my 1st time to develop locally on my computer, and I want to avoid any disasters when going to a live site.

    EDIT... using MAMP by the way, and I have been doing fairly well so far.

    Hi
    it is easy to do it, and yes you need to search and replace in your DB using the script if your search and replace went ok rest of it is just copying the folders over to your server
    the other thing i would recommend is
    go to tools > export
    your posts,pages, categories xml
