I have built my site in WAMP on my pc. now want to put on my web server.

I have a godaddy account and have just created a database in myphpadmin.

How do i create the sql from local. I think once i have this i can import it on the live database and will create my tables.

Then would I just upload my silverstripe project folder from 'WAMP/www/silverstripeproject'

and browse to it on ''

Hi Will,

Thanks for info. Can i just ask

it says install with black candy when i used tutorial them. does this matter?

I have installed swfupload, fileDataobjectmanager and youtube-gallery-module on my site. Should i hjust copy these up to root of project after and dev/build database again?

Also if I dont want this site to be the main site, it is a client site I want to show them it working, and want to link off to it. Can I do this by putting it in subfolder on my site. Or does it have to be main site.

hope this makes sense. Thanks for help

zim, sweet! Glad you got it sorted. If that page is missing any information or confusing in any way feel free to update it.

it seems pretty fine to me. I had my database set up in godaddy and once I had made my subdomain. I just uploaded the contents of new silverstripe project and browsed to it. Hey Presto i had the normal silverstripe install screen and just followed the instructions as normal. inputing DB information from godaddy myphpadmin section.

I had heard that godaddy was a bit funny and that I might have to use their installer but this was not the case. It worked fine.

I presume that now if I want to add the modules I have in my project like swfupload and dataobject_manager i just upload them to root of project and dev/build my database.

Thanks for advice

What I do is export the database I want to transfer, either using Mysql Admin, PHPMyAdmin or MysqlDump from the command line as a .sql file.

I then use phpmyadmin on the server to import that sql file into the new database for the site.

Usually works pretty flawlessly.

Do you have access to phpmyadmin for your WAMp server?
