[resolved] replacing current html site with xampp site (4 posts)

    Hi all,

    I'm new to wordpress (and not too familiar with web design in general), but have been trying to teach myself based on trial and error/online tutorials. I have built a site locally using XAMPP on my mac desktop and it is (mostly) ready to go. I now want to transfer the site to a server and have it be live. Currently, the domain (www.solublesolutions.com) has an old HTML site. I have the login info for FTP and for the host website (which is mycorphosting).

    I have tried several times to install wordpress or move the files over and nothing is working. I get either 404 or 500 server errors when I do. Can anyone direct me to a step by step tutorial applicable to my situation? Or possibly talk me through the steps I need to take?

    Thanks for any help you all can give me.

    Update: I tried to export my localhost database and import it on my server. Then I FTPed the wordpress folder on the site.

    Now, I have this:

    Which is new and correct in terms of content, but not at all formatted. I also can't login to wordpress this way.

    Am I on the right track?
