Uploading existing WordPress site

Hello, I was wondering how to upload an existing WordPress site that was hosted elsewhere but isn't online now and only exists on my computer. Thank you.

Do you have the full export of the site (as in the wp-content / wp-includes... etc) along with the database??

 

Assuming the answer is yes then in theory, what you would do is FTP the content onto a new server and import the database - you may have to update the database user information in the wp-config.php file but from there you should be good to go.

 

If you have a backup of the site like a wpress file (from all-in-one migration) then you will need to launch a new wordpress site and install the plugin and do an import

Re: Uploading existing WordPress site

I have prepared a website with DNS sub9teen.com on godaddy website. While proceeding, I was prompted to go pro with godaddy managed WP. So I purchased Deluxe WP. When started to prepare WP Website, I was assigned with a temporary domain. It works with Temporary domain perfectly alright but as soon I want to shift from temporary domain to anyother domain name, I get stuck up and cannot open the production site. I checked the cache issue and other related issues and found each one in order. How to go about it.

I have spent more then a month to have purchased Deluxe WP and waisted the complete month, yet no WP  site could be arranged / put on air.
