    Hi All,

    I made a webpage and would like to move it to a hosting provider. I already have a website in Joomla with this provider and sometime ago they installed wordpress for me and there is a test area that has wordpress.
    The following questions I have:

    1. How do I transfer my wordpress site from local pc to this "domain"?

    2. I have not made a child theme yet. Should I make a child them first on my pc or transfer it to the hosting provider first?

    3. Going forward, the people of the website will be able to maintain the website and I want to know how to back-up regularly. Is there a manual for this somewhere?

    1. Review Moving_WordPress.

    2, What parent theme are you using?

    3. See WordPress_Backups

    Try the free plugin Duplicator:

    It can get the site easily online (got to make a database at the hosting provider panel first though Cpanel etc.) It can also easily backup a site.

    I would make a child theme locally. Test out how things work, and when satisfied install the plugin Duplicator and then get the site online.
