Moving WordPress from Localhost to Subdomain to Root of site.
# January 4, 2013 at 2:16 pm
Thanks @chrisburton :-)
The setting I had to change were in the WPEC…none of my Store settings etc are there. Currency, shipping, payment etc etc… All blank! Very strange
Since messaging you yesterday, I have discovered that you can import and export the actual Theme settings. So I have done that and sorted permalinks etc however…all is not well. My widgets are not there and I had to delete some pages and also there now appears to be two ‘Home’ Pages…one of which should come under ‘Blog’. Half of my photos on the homepage are missing. :-(
This is putting me setting up the new test site if I am going to have to make loads of changes again once move it. Shouldn’t I have been able to have an exact carbon copy of my website and settings once importing everything? Not even any of my plugins or theme were activated. :-(# January 4, 2013 at 2:34 pm
As @TheDoc said, all your information should have been stored in the database from exporting to importing. When I moved WordPress, I uploaded a fresh install, changed the config file to match my old database and then imported the database through PHPMyAdmin. From there I changed all the URL’s which you can do via a plugin that Gray might be able to post here. I always forget the name.# January 4, 2013 at 3:05 pm
And you’ll need to modify two options in the DB in the wp_options table for the site root/url.# March 27, 2013 at 11:23 pm
Hi, I’m new to wp and have been building a site in localhost and now I’m trying to move it to a /dev site for user to upload content before the website goes live.
I’ve exported the mysql database as explained on this discussion from PHPMyAdmin and all went well. But when I went to the host and tried importing it from the application on that side, it threw an error. Can anyone help with this?
