local host instead of remote host

ok now that i have one builder install under the belt, one in which it basically was a manual install and got at least the client pages under cms and editable, now i want to test it on my own remote server and started the process by creating an accessible database to test with.
Even this test is not a pure one though, since previously i had installed the wa cms on the remote server and there are some files there, although i believe it is version 1 files.
anyway i started up builder and it wants to install on the localhost, the same thing as it did before - when i failed to notice that issue. so i have to install on the local host and then
put the files on the remote server, unless there is some dw management of the site that i should be doing beforehand? such as removing the testing server from the picture?

further on... i uploaded various directories and after doing that did not have to go through another install, and the original content that was placed under cms was available on the remote host. so apparently the builder accesses the remote database, placed the content there, and after putting the files all is ready for a user to edit the pages that have been put under the cms...
the directories that i needed to upload were
