From Local to Remote

  • # August 11, 2008 at 11:38 am

    Hay I was wondering if you could help me…

    I have created my wordpress theme and site on my local host. I made changes to the themes and uploaded images using the wordpress theme editor.

    This gives a pathof something like: localhost/images/blahblahblah

    How do I upload my site to my host?

    Do i just upload the files and folders, then upload the mysql and then go through every page and change the localhost text to the actual URL or can this be done automatically?

    This seems like I’m doing this in the wrong way… how or what is the best way to develop locally and then remotely?

    Thanks, Gavin

    Hmmm. That sure is an interesting problem. My gut instinct is there probably is no good quick solution. You’ll either need to into each post and updated the URL to the new live locations – or – if you are handy with MySQL, do some sort of find/replace when you are moving the database to the new server to replace the URL path with the correct one. Might wanna try asking around in the WordPress forums also.

    thanks, luckily I I spotted this early doors, so could start it again on the remote server. Just wanted to see if their was quick solution.

    cheers for commenting.
