i know there are answers out there and hundreds of tut videos on utube but all old.
in this case what should i do?
do a fresh install of wp on your new site
delete all testpage/testcomment contents
install plugin "wordpress importer" on new site
upload theme that you developed for test site to new site
on old site use tools>export and export all data of your test site to an xml file on your local computer
go to new site and to tools>importer and upload from your local computer the xml file
in appearance>menus rebuild the menus if necessary
this should cover the basic way to do it.
thx alot for the quick response, will try and let u know the result :)
its hardest way, i tried it on another site to see how it looks, i need to configure everything from the beginning. Is there any other way to export the site as a whole thing and import it and after everything looks the same?
Install wordpress on new site
Now you've got wordpress
Copy all of WP-content folder across
then you've got your themes, plugins and uploads
Use phpmyadmin to copy the database to your PC - use the custom export, and select zipped and drop table as options
now you've got the oldsite database saved on your PC
Go to you new MySQL database and import the database
you've now got the old database, with all the data, but it's all pointing at the old site
use the sql query and pate the following
UPDATE wp_options SET option_value = 'http://www.mysite.com' WHERE option_name IN ('siteurl', 'home')
where 'mysite' is you new site url
now you have the site url right so you can...
login into wp-admin on new site
install velvet blues plugin and change the urls from old site to new site
now you have the site looking for all the attachments in the new sites uploads folder
and that's it
