    Hi Guys,

    One stupid question here. How do you setup your local development environment?

    I just finished to build a big WP website with a lot of content and pictures. Now I need to upload them to the real address. So, I exported the content using Tools->Export and imported there. But now I need to fix all the links and references, because a lot of stuffs are pointing to my local address.

    Any tip how to avoid this headache?



    I don’t use the built in export features to deploy a client site.

    I export the database using Phpmyadmin or mysqldump. Then search and replace with in the sql file.

    It’s far more reliable than import/export if you have a lot of posts/pages and it takes WordPress settings and plugin options too.


    Hi, Thanks.

    I will try to do this.
