Support » Localhost Installs » How to import local site to Godaddy

  • Hi all,

    I have a local website, say aaa, running on my server. To evoke it locally just type /localhost/aaa

    It works without problem. Please advise how to import it to Godady server including MySQL data base? I already have a subdomain created on Godaddy server but without installing WordPress on it.

    Hi esmi,

    Thanks for your link.

    After having read the link briefly it seems necessary making some changes on the local site. But I still need the local site for future development which is running on a VM of Oracle VirtualBox. I’ll clone a new VM and make changes on it before moving the site.


    If you are using a Linux server on godaddy you will need an htacess rewrite for the subdomain, I have moved wpsites in the past and used searchreplacedb2.php and works great. I’m having a similar issue because I have never moved to subdomain before and have a problem with getting htaccess to redirect to run searchreplacedb2.php.

    H rebobo,

    Thanks for your advice.

    I’m subscribing Godaddy Linux server share-hosting. But I can’t install;
    Database Search and Replace Script in PHP

    on their server.


    You do not install it, it is a script. You ftp the file in the root directory and open it in the browser. You can also do this in your existing server or localhost before exporting. When the script opens you type your old url and then the new url. It finds and replaced the url, which you could do with any text editor but it also replaces the serialized data that wp puts in the files which you cannot do with any text editor. If the serialized data does match the number of characters in the url you will have pages and post with errors.
