Hi everyone,

I developed my website offline, on Windows. However, my problem is that I cannot upload the database from my HDD to the web.

I installed the PHP installer and Silverstripe runs smoothly.

Thanks in advance

You have to use a tool like PHPMyAdmin to transfer your database. Silverstripe has no built in functionality to transfer sites.

Thanx.

However, what exactly do I need to upload. I mean which files of the windows installation.

As far as I understand it should be the mysql\data\ss_mysite folder.

In PHPMyAdmin, export your database, then import on your server.

The database is made offline, with the windows installer.
So now I should install phpmyadmin locally, on my computer, export my database and then upload it with the server's phpmyadmin?

It does not really work.
When I upload the database and I upload the content ot htdocs happens nth.
What should I do?

PS:With the PHP installer, when I install a fresh copy, it works.

Make sure to set the correct values in the _config.php file in your project-directory.
