Moving my site from local to live
Hello, I need to move my site from localhost to live on the web. Pretty sure I know relatively how to do it however I need to do a little extra. Basically I want to make this site live as I need people to see it for troubleshooting a problem I am having with jquery. There is still traffic on the current site so my boss wants this to remain seperate. I said I would put it in a sub-directory of the site so it cant be accessed unless the visitor knows what to type. I.E. I want to make my site live on http://www.example.com/hiddensite – which will essentially link to my new site’s index page.
Here is what i think I need to do and would appreciate if anyone could correct this or add in steps:
1)Change the url address in wordpress settings.
2)Export my database
3)FTP all my files* (confused here)
4)Change wp-config info
5)Import database in myphpadmin
*With the FTP, I am a bit unsure where to put all the files. The current live site was done in joomla, so when i connect to the ftp, I see the index.php in /htdocs. Where do I place my files for the new site…create a folder so its /htdocs/hidden?
