Moving from localhost to service provider (go daddy)
I have had a localhost (running mySQL 5.1.41) verion of Powerstore 3 that I have been working with to create my store and build out my content. I am using DW CS4 and WA content management tools to manage everything. Several of the delivered WA pages have had modifications made to them and obviously all the PHP content has been altered. At this point all is good and I am ready to upload to Go Daddy.
What recommendations does anyone have for uploading all the work I have done on my local DB to Go Daddy? Is it as simple as changing the DW site settings from my localhost to my Go Daddy settings? If I upload my current site as-is, how do I enable the database build that is apart of the PW3 setup process?
Or, do I need to create a new DW site and populate it with the vanilla PW3, get that all up and running and then populate the vanilla Go Daddy site with my changes and DB exports (from my localhost mySQL) and imports (into my similarly named go daddy mySQL)?
Has anyone else done this? If so, what problems or gotcha's have you run into?
Thanks in advance for your advice.
