the install process sets up your paths so it is not straight forward to reansfer from your local server to the live one. Within your mysql database is a table which hold the settings applicable to your specific server. Whilst you can changer these by hand I find it easier to follow this method.
Upload the contents of you ps3 master copy to your web server and then run the install.
This will set up the paths for the menus, graphics etc.
Make sure that both the admin and public site works ok.
Open up your mysql admin tool on your local pc and dump all the tables excluding wa_settings into an sql file.
Using your mysql admin tool log onto your remote server and run the sql file this will populate your remote database with your local details but leave the settings alone in the settings table.
Finaly you can upload your files from your local PC. DO NOT UPLOAD THE CONNECTIONS DIRECTORY.
Sounds long winded but it really does not take long and it works.
