I hope you can help me folks, I have learnt to move WordPress to a web server, I now think I understand that sequence of events, after much failure.
However, I am making a website for a friend of mine and uploaded the ‘rough’ for him to look at.
now when I try and log back in locally (so I can make changes) wordpress logs me into the online version of the site.
Now please understand that NOTHING has changed (except the URL’s of course that I did a search and replace on)The version on the web server is exactly the same at this moment in time as the one on my machine.
So what I would ‘like’ to do is just log back in to my localhost version, change the site, makes his other pages etc, and then re-upload to the same directory online (after search and replace again of course) overwriting the files as appropriate.
But I have no clue how to make WordPress look at my local machine again 🙁
Surely this is a simple process?
Oh and please, please, please dont point me to this page:
As it simply does not cover what I’m asking (or if it does I dont understand it)
Thanks for your help all,
