Im having an problem that happens to me always.
On every project i start i work locally and once im done i export my database and search replace all localhost url's to the new url.
then in cpanel i create a new database user name and password and modify wp-config.
the website works fine all pages working just one thing wont work and i cant find a solution:
all my Theme Options wont show
my theme options settings and s widgets wont show up and i have to redo this process from the beginning so each time i will have to redo all the settings.
i have read a lot about it:
and even used this tool you posted:
but still don't know what am i doing wrong.
same thing happens when i try to install a site on local host from a backup.
is there a tutorial on how to do this the right way or can someone please please help.
Thanks in advance
