    hi!

    i want to transfer my website from my localhost to my webserver.
    I transfered my myql database and i loaded everything on the server.

    now safari shows that the website can't be loaded.
    and it says that the websites name is "http://example5.ex.ohost.de:8888/ds1/"
    i don't know why there is the :8888. i use mamp for my localhost and there i can always see :8888.
    i'm out of ideas.

    please help! thanks

    Did you change the urls in Settings>>>General as looks like they are still localhost urls.

    use one of this methods

    Did you replace all the old links and file paths in the SQL from the local database before importing into the live one? If not, or if not done properly, this can cause multiple problems.

    Links and upload paths are serialized in many database records. A simple search-and-replace will make those serialized values invalid and break all references to them.

    Here is an article showing the steps I use to migrate a site from my local install to an online one: http://wordpress.mcdspot.com/2012/08/22/migrating-a-wordpress-site-step-by-step/
