Migrate Local WordPress Site To Live Hosting

Video Transcript:

Jason Moss:

Hey guys, what’s going on? Jason Moss here. And in yesterday’s video I showed you how to install WordPress, a locally on your PC or your Mac a look in the description below for that video. In today’s video, I’m going to show you how to take the site that you make, okay, locally, and upload it to a web host. All right? And make it live. It’s very, very simple. This is how you do it. Okay? So once again, if this doesn’t look familiar, all right, go back and watch yesterday’s video, Lincoln description, okay? But after you make your site here, using the program that we suggested, which is local WP, all right? You have your site here. We’re going to go to this site. I already have it open, but let’s let’s click on admin. We’ll pop it open. I’ll show you that it’s all live, okay.

Jason Moss:

And so you can see, this is Jason’s dash site dot local. So this is not live on the internet. This is the local site, okay? The plugin that we’re going to be using is something called all in one WP migration. Okay? So you go to plugins, you go to add new, all right? And you just type in all in one. Okay? And this one here pops up all in one WP migration. So I’ve already, I already have it installed. You’re just going to click install now and then you activate it. All right? You do this on the local site, all right? And then you do it over on the live site of where you’re moving it to, the one that is on a hosting account. So for this example, we’re going to be using JW mos.com. Okay. This is just a little test site. There is nothing on this right now.

Jason Moss:

Okay. And this is the local site that you see. Okay. So we’ll be cloning this local site over to the JW moss.com site, which is a live one actually on the internet. Okay? So this is how you do it. All right? You’re going to go back to the local. All right. So we’re here on Jason’s site dot local. We’re going to go to the plugin that we installed, which is all in one WP migration. All right? And we’re going to go to the export area. Okay? You don’t want to import or backups, you want export. So we click on export, we click on file, all right? And they give you a lot of other options. All right? There’s lots of ways that you can do this, but this is the easiest way. So this is a very small website. It’s exported it five megabytes. You click on that and it downloads it to your computer.

Jason Moss:

Okay? So you’re done here on the local site. Now you hop over to the live site. Okay. JW moz.com. We’re going to go back here into the dashboard area. All right? Then we’re going to click on the plugin. All right, and we’re going to go to the import area cause we’re importing the site to the live one. All right, so import from, all right, we’re going to import from a file, which is the file we just downloaded. All right? And it opens this up on your computer. I’m going to click on the file that we just downloaded. We hit open, okay. And it just imports it very, very quickly. Once again, this is a very small website and you see it has this notification. It’s gonna overwrite the website that’s currently on here. Which of course, yes, that, that is what we want.

Jason Moss:

All right, we hit proceed. Okay. And this does its thing. And there you go. You are good to go. Your site has imported successfully. All right, perfect. Finish. All right. And one other thing guys. Right now it only has a 32 megabyte limit. That is because of your host. Okay? If you contact your host, you can have them upgrade this all the way up to 512 megabytes. That’s what this plugin does for free. Okay? So if your site is larger than 512 megabytes, you will have to get the unlimited version there. Pro version. It’s right here, I believe. Yeah. You see the, the free version does up to a 512 megabytes site for free. The premium, it’s $69 lifetime. Which is cool. Lifetime. I mean it’s, it’s not like a one year type thing, so you have it forever.

Jason Moss:

But for most of you, you’re going to have sites that are under 512 megabytes. Okay. But let’s go here and make sure this has worked. So we’ll go to visit site. Okay. And look at that. Everything is cloned over exactly as this is the local site. Super sweet looking site. We’ll go to the live one, JW moss.com. Super sweet looking site. Everything is the same exact as the local site. So that is how you do it. Very, very simple. If you’ve got questions, concerns if you run into issues with this file size, once again, contact your host and have them upgrade the file, upload size, okay. They’ll know exactly what you’re talking about. But yeah, if you’ve got questions or comments, leave them below. Hit that like button subscribe. I’d really appreciate it and I’ll have more videos for you in the next coming days. Thanks guys.
