PowerCMS Install on live server question

PowerCMS Install on live server question

Followed tutorial and Installed PowerCMS(PCMS) successfully on my local(Wamp) server and put up a few test pages. Now want to do same on live server. Configured DW successfully for the remote Server. When I attempted to apply PCMS to remote pages, I did not get the automatic Install/Setup wizard that I got when setting up the local server. Can I just move all the PCMS related files and folders to live server, import the DB tables PCMS added, edit PowerCMSConnection.php to login to the remote DB and it will work? Or do need to uninstall the local server version and files and start over with just a remote PCMS install/setup? Want to be cautious just pushing related files automatically live thru DW as last time I did that, it overwrote my live /Connections/_sql.php file and it took the better part of a day to figure out why half the live pages weren't loading.
Your guidance is much appreciated as always.

You can just upload all of the files, export and import the database, and update the connection file.

If you delete the connection file and re-create the same named connection using the WebAssist Dynamic Connection instead of a standard dreamweaver connection you can set it up to work on both your live and local server at the same time so that you don't need to worry about if/when you upload it by accident.

Moved the files, updated the DB, chased down a few errors and now all is working nicely. Had to have my ISP turn off Safe Mode so the file uploader now works.I'll take a look at that WA Dynamic Connection.
Thanks for all your help - I think we're good on this one.

Now this one weird anomaly with the PowerCMS on my live server that has occurred twice. Here's the error I encountered when setting up PCMS on the URL in the PM below:

Warning: require_once(../images/installed.jpg) [function.require-once]: failed to open stream: No such file or directory in /home/httpd/vhosts/outofchaos.net/httpdocs/www/gsc/www/WA_Globals/WA_Globals.php on line 59

Fatal error: require_once() [function.require]: Failed opening required '../images/installed.jpg' (include_path='.:/opt/alt/php53/usr/share/pear:/opt/alt/php53/usr/share/php') in /home/httpd/vhosts/outofchaos.net/httpdocs/www/gsc/www/WA_Globals/WA_Globals.php on line 59

I then realize PCMS wants this installed.jpg in the /images folder to run. So I upload that image and the PCMS Admin login comes up fine. However, when I Logout, the installed.jpg file disappears from my server?? I reupload the file and PCMS works fine. Logout, image disappears and I get the errors again. Not sure why this image is even required. Maybe I can edit the code to remove the requirement? Help please.
Thank you

That has some hidden code in it for activation that some servers detect and assume is malicious since it communicates with our server.

Replace these files on your server and it should solve the problem:
gsc/www/WA_Globals/WA_Globals.php
gsc/www//images/installed.php

Attached Files
WA_Globals.php
installed.php
