Which exact files need to be uploaded to my host
Hello, first time caller. I have been reading everywhere, checking forums and posts, here and elsewhere, but can’t really find a simple answer to this question:
Which files or folders, exactly, need to be uploaded (with ftp) from my local WP instance on my Mac to my hosted WP account? When I add a blog post, or picture, or new page on my local WP, what must I upload to affect the change on my hosted, internet-live WP?
My local instance is a Bitnami Stack. It seems to be running fine and everything (mySQL and Apache servers running, and I can log in and change stuff). Similar to XAAMP I guess?
I’m hosted on FatCow (great place, really like them). I can access my site and everything through FTP. I used their site to install WP into my account (using simplescripts).
I downloaded all the WP stuff from my host onto my local machine and replaced the WP instance inside the Bitnami install (I think this is OK, they were both 3.5.1) so it would all match up. I just dont know what to upload to the host (my internet is slow, and i only want to upload what is changed)
Thanks for the help. I’m very familiar with computers and whatnot, so I hope I’m not missing something simple here. I’ve been using iWeb for years to host a site, but now I’m trying to learn FTP and local vs hosted instances and all that, trying to wrap my head around it all.
