[resolved] Creating a wp-config.php file on local server (5 posts)

    Hi everyone,
    Sorry if the question sounds stupid, I'm completely new to WP. I installed WP on my Wamp local server and after I design the site I'll be transferring the files to the client's live server. I'm confused about the Database name, username, password and host part to create the wp-config.php file. Since it is on my local server do I give them any name I want or do I need to get such information from client's hosting service?

    Put the database information for the remote server as it's where WordPress will run and will mean you don't need to copy the database =)

    If you want to test completely locally however, you'll need to setup a local database and transfer it to the server afterwards.

    Yes I'll be completely testing locally. Once it is completely finished and I make sure everything works fine I'll transfer it to a live server. So I'll be setting up the Database name, username, password and host locally and then transfer it?
