Hosting a website can be time and pain-sticking so here are the few abridged steps involved in hosting a website. Since WordPress is a website application that is written in PHP, it is best to get familiarised with the phpMyAdmin. WordPress runs on PHP and it calls up information from the database dynamically generating posts and pages on the spot in the cPanel.
Next would be to backup that database incase of mistakes when trying to upload the local version of your site to a live server, you will have a backup and to backup select the local WordPress database within the phpMyAdmin list to ‘Export’. Select the ‘custom’ then ‘zip’ as your compression method.
Export your database from the local-host and this time select the ‘gzipped’ instead of the ‘zip’.
Upload your database using FTP, upload the WordPress files to your hostingaccount to which you need an FTP client. Once you have a handle on how to use an FTP client, launch your preferred one and connect to your live hosting account then find the directory where you would want your site to appear.
For creating a MySQL Database you will need to create a MySQL database on your live site to ensure your site appears as you intended.
Before you ‘Import’ the earlier uploaded files go back to the cPanel and click on phpMyAdmin and select the MySQL database you created in the previous step before clicking the ‘import’ now that your database is created.
To fix the URL, configure the settings that match your localhost which needs to be fixed. In the phpMyAdmin scroll down to the wp_option. Find the option_name beneath where you will find the ‘siteurl’. Click the ‘edit’, once the ‘edit’ windows open look for the option_value field. Get rid of whatever is in the ‘siteurl’ and click ‘go’ to save changes.
Open the FTP client and edit your wp-configuration.php file to finish the setup. Input in database name, username and password on the appropriate lines then save the file and re-upload it onto your file server. Now on typing the website address your WordPress site should appear.
