Transferring site on MAMP online

  • Hi there, I have a site on MAMP (version 2.0.1) created in WordPress, that I am now ready to put online. It’s replacing a current site that was created in Dreamweaver. I can connect through FTP (Filezilla) and I need to put the WordPress site online. The question is, how do I go about doing that? Many thanks, finding it tricky!

    Thank you…. Do I need to change the wp.config.php settings before transferring? The SQL hostname has ‘localhost:8889’ after it.

    // ** MySQL settings – You can get this info from your web host ** //
    /** The name of the database for WordPress */
    define(‘DB_NAME’, ‘*****’);

    /** MySQL database username */
    define(‘DB_USER’, ‘*****’);

    /** MySQL database password */
    define(‘DB_PASSWORD’, ‘************’);

    /** MySQL hostname */
    define(‘DB_HOST’, ‘localhost:8889’);

    You have to edit your wp-config.php file, yes. It has to point to the remote database.

    Thank you. I was checking previous questions. Do I need copy all the WordPress files offline to a new folder called public_html? I’ve just asked the host what I need to chance the MySQL settings to, to point to the remote database.
