I have developed a local WP site on my mac, using MAMP. Now, I’m ready to upload that to my hosted account at Godaddy. So far, I have:
• Installed WP on the hosted server successfully
• Taken my wp-content and uploaded to the server, thus replacing the ‘native’ wp-content directory.
• I exported my local WP database/’backed it up’ and imported that .sql file into the _db_backups folder.
I can login to the site fine on the back-end from wp-admin. However, if I go to preview the site, I get a blank screen. I used myPHPadmin to go to the wp-options section within the database and changed the urls to point to the hosted directory.
Support at GoDaddy told me it’s a port issue and I’m still showing 105 instances of port 8888. However, I think the tech is referring to the GNUI (I think it’s called?) column from generated posts and edits, and somehow I don’t know if that’s the problem. After all, the Codex says not to manipulate this field.
Any ideas on what is going on?
