Move WordPress from local server to live site manually.
There are many different ways to migrate a WordPress site. In this article, I will show you how to move WordPress from local server to live site manually. This process allows you to safely move all of your site’s content (images, posts, and pages) as well as themes and plugins from a directory on your computer to your host’s production server. Step 1: Export Local WordPress Database
Step 2: Uploading WordPress Files to Live Site Now open an FTP client and connect to your live site. And next select your local WordPress files and upload them to your live server. Step 3: Creating MySQL Database on Live Site
Step 4: Importing WordPress Database on Live Site
Step 5: Changing the Site URL
Step 6: Fixing Images and Broken Links by updating Paths For those who want to do it via SQL, here is a simple SQL query that should solve this problem:
UPDATE wp_posts SET post_content = REPLACE(post_content, 'localhost/test/', 'www.yourlivesite.com/');
If you have followed all of the above steps, then you have successfully moved your WordPress website from localhost to the live server.
