Support » Installing WordPress » Upload a custom edited local copy to GoDaddy hosting

  • ethyloh



    I’m going crazy trying to figure out how to do this.

    I built a full wordpress site with a custom theme using XAMPP and Dreamweaver CS5 on my home computer. Everything was edited locally.

    Now I want to upload this site exactly as it is to my hosting space on GoDaddy.

    When I use the wordpress dashboard on my hosted site (not the LOCALHOST copy), everything resets to defaults. Basically a fresh “just another word press site”.

    My theme shows up in the theme section, but I’ve lost all the pages, menus, posts, etc.

    I basically uploaded everything to GoDaddy using the built-in FTP capabilities in Dreamweaver CS5. I also set up the MySQL database on GoDaddy.

    Do I need to adjust the settings in the wp-config file back from the LOCALHOST settings? Will that fix everything?

    I really thought that building the site would be the hard part, but it turns out that uploading it is more difficult….

    Content for posts,pages etc are stored in you MYSQL database. Did you move the data base ?
