Migrate and hosting

Hello everybody, I have developed a website with ClassicPress in localhost and I would like to know if the migration of the website can be done manually (copying the files into the new host server and importing the DB).
In addition, I would like to know is somebody knows any good hosting for doing it.


Yes, you can copy the files from localhost to your live server and import the database. However, you will have to manually edit the wp-config.file (presuming your database was also on localhost) to use your live database server credentials. And, in your database, you’ll need to scan for any references to your localhost URL and replace it with your updated URL. An easier method may be to use a plugin – I’ve used Duplicator with good success. As for hosting, there’s a lot of information available in the hosting forum.

…and welcome to ClassicPress :slight_smile:
