Has ANYONE had any luck taking an Instant WordPress site from the local installation to live on a GoDaddy.com server??? I have read through the eBook, followed it step by step, Googled every possible angle and read every possible post on the codex and cannot get the site to work live!! I've built a couple of sites on Instant WordPress which include hours and hours of work and will have to completely redo them if I can't make this work. I want to at least get these ones up and then try something different (like building in a sub-directory) after these are up. I'm not good with php files and all the database stuff that goes with WordPress (just started using it). So I'm going to need very specific instructions.
Specifically, when I migrate a site I am using Filezilla to move the plugins, themes and uploads files to the wp-content folder. Then using the "Tools - Export/Import" function to bring in the content. The content comes in fine, but I get "failure" notices for all the media and the media library is empty except for an oddly named .xml.txt file. And I cannot figure out how to make the URLs go from the Instant WordPress local URL's to the actual domain name. I tried using the Velvet Blue plugin and it messed the whole site up. I finally had to just delete the whole installation so I can start over.
Any help with this would be greatly appreciated! I'm about to pull my hair out and am not looking forward to having to recreate all these sites all over again! Please, please help me!
