Transferring Instant wordpress to a live web

Hi all.

I really have no idea on how to transfer my local wordpress to a live web hosting. Any one can help would be a great pleasure.

Thanks,
Froilan

    Do you have a live site?
    If yes, then install wordpress on your site and if you cannot then ask your host to install wordpress on your site.
    Install and activate the same wordpress theme that was in your local server.
    Export your local database and import it in your live wordpress site.

      It's not quite as straightforward as creating a new installation of WP on your server and importing the database from your PC. That won't really work.

      It's not difficult, but it's probably easier if you see it done. So here's a YouTube video that explains it well. -

        Another possibility is to use a plugin like Backup Creator (that's the one I use). Install and backup / clone your entire site. Then follow the simple installation instructions to install the clone on your live site domain. I've done it on just a few clicks and it worked great. I'm terribly tech savvy so it's gotta be simple for me to do it. Since yours isn't a live site then it may not work the same way but I though I'd better mention it just in case it's a viable method.

        Hope that helps.

            Yes! No problem. You can do it fast. I use backupbuddy. It's not free but very easy to use.
