Upload a custom edited local copy to GoDaddy hosting (2 posts)

    Hi,

    I'm going crazy trying to figure out how to do this.

    I built a full wordpress site with a custom theme using XAMPP and Dreamweaver CS5 on my home computer. Everything was edited locally.

    Now I want to upload this site exactly as it is to my hosting space on GoDaddy.

    When I use the wordpress dashboard on my hosted site (not the LOCALHOST copy), everything resets to defaults. Basically a fresh "just another word press site".

    My theme shows up in the theme section, but I've lost all the pages, menus, posts, etc.

    I basically uploaded everything to GoDaddy using the built-in FTP capabilities in Dreamweaver CS5. I also set up the MySQL database on GoDaddy.

    Do I need to adjust the settings in the wp-config file back from the LOCALHOST settings? Will that fix everything?

    I really thought that building the site would be the hard part, but it turns out that uploading it is more difficult....
