    I will be appreciated if someone can help me here: Warning ::New to Wp, not a coder.
    I installed WP using "bitNami" that means I didn't need to do any configuration or using phpMyAdmin at all. It did it for me. I purchased a wp theme &customized it on localhost. Now I need to move everything to Bluehost server. This is what I have done:
    Under localhost/wp dashboard>I used : Tools>export to export site content from my customized wp. Then I imported the xml file into the wp site on bluehost server ( same theme). Problem is that none of my customization gets imported. If I export all the content as one xml file-- I receive an error message such as :
    Failed to import portfolio_categories Campaigns
    Failed to import portfolio_categories Digital / Typography
    Failed to import Media “tumblr_myebwtELvb1st5lhmo1_1280”
    Failed to import Media “tumblr_mxrv9j9zmc1st5lhmo1_1280”

    If I do the export and import process for pages or contact or portfolio as separate xml files- it tells me that those pages already exist on the server.
    At this point I don't know what I am supposed to do!
    If I am supposed to somehow export or backup the customized files then upload those on the server:: then please let me know how? I simply went under wp-content on my machine and uploaded everything including theme and child-theme folders on bluehost server assuming my customization should be reflected in those files.

    Thank you

    Before starting importing, kindly install the plugin thats already there in your old site. It seems the portfolio post type is missing.
