I have a website built on the localhost WordPress running on my PC. I want moving it to the domain hosted on Godaddy server. I already has install WordPress on the domain, say aaa.com. There is no website built on it YET.
I suppose the steps described on following section suitable for me? If it is NOT please advise which section of “Moving WordPress” shall I follow? Thanks
Moving to a New Server:
(Please shed me some light on following points)
If You Don’t Care If Your Old Blog Works
(I suppose Old Blog refers to the website on the localhost WordPress ?)
Download a copy of the main wordpress files from your OLD blog to your hard drive and edit wp-config.php to suit the new server.
(I suppose this step can be omitted in my case because the OLD blog is already on my PC ? I just make the necessary changes on my PC)
Go back to your OLD blog and go to Administration > Settings > General and change the url (both of them) to that of your new site.
(I just do it on Dashboard of the localhost WordPress ?)
Login on your server and go to phpmyadmin and export as file and save your database (but keep the old one just in case), upload this new database and the copy of the wordpress core files with the edited wp-config.php to your new server. That’s it!
(I suppose “your server” refers to the localhost WordPress, i.e. my PC ?)
Please advise. Thanks in advance.
