Moving local site to remote server – new WordPress installation?
I already have a website up and running on WP. I now have a second website, that I have built locally and now want to move to make it live.
The old (existing) site was built and hosted by another company, which is still live, until my new website takes over.
I have gone through the process of moving my local site to the new server: new database, wp-config file and sql. It all seems to be up on my server.
Do I now need to install another WordPress installation on my machine, that can allow me to manage the new website? Because I developed the new site using WP locally – do I still need to do another new install for this ‘live’ version?
When I type in http://www.mynewwebsite.com/wp-admin.php it redirects to the current (old) live site. So I can’t seem to find/manage/edit my new (though it’s not live yet because we haven’t done the redirects) website?
I am stuck – could anyone advise?
