Moving from localhost to service provider (go daddy)

Moving from localhost to service provider (go daddy)

Hello all,

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.

Essentially what you're going to have to do is to upload all the files to the server that are in your local drive. Then you will have to export the database, and import it into the database on your live server. Then you will have to go into the connection file and change the connection to point to your live database server. Another thing you might have to do is to look in the database table for settings and change the Google API Key, local root and remote root to match with the server location and API key for your domain.

Hi

what I do is this.

Upload the original PS3 file to my Web Server and run the setup sequence.

Then I upload all my local files EXCLUDING THE CONNETIONS FOLDER.

Finaly I create an SQL dump of my local database excluding the WA settings folder. ( use php myadmin or navicat)

Run that SQl on your remote database and all data will be uploaded.

You should find it will work - always does for me.

Thanks for the different way of working through this. Hopefully the user won't have any issues when uploading to their server.

Hi Jimmy

I suppose you do need to be happy creating the sql files but apart from that I find it the simplest way.

Ok a couple of times I've had to re insert a graphic but overall it does as the say "work for me"

cheers
