I have read this: http://codex.wordpress.org/Moving_WordPress but before I do anything, I just want to confirm:
I want to replace my existing WP site (louisvorster.co.za) with a localhost – MAMP -website I have on my laptop(Localhost:8888). I dont care about any of the files or content of my existing site, everything will be replaced by the new site.
1.) edit my localhost wp-config.php to match the file on the web server I want to replace.
2.) Remove all the files from the httpdocs folder on my hosts web server via FTP
3.) Transfer all the localhost files from my computer to the httpdocs folder on my web server.
4.) Go to Administration/settings and change the URL?
Is this the way to do it?
