Hi I just want to know the easiest way to go from a working development server (LAMP) to a live server (LAMP) with SS 3.0.5 CMS

I have read the other members' posts and followed them i have tried:

1. Installing a fresh copy to my root directory on the live server (public_html) with an empty database (_SS)
2. Exporting the tables in the development servers database and then importing into live database after dropping those tables
3. Copying mysite folder, templates and assets to the live server replacing everything
4. Editing mysite/_config.php $db array to suit
5. then doing /dev/build

after doing that I am left with a site that doesn't show any created pages that were in the Dev server.
if I go to the CMS in pages it shows home but no created pages

Also tried copying all files over from Dev server and changing mysite/_config.php to suit then importing database to live server

Is there anything I am missing? or any step by step guide

Double check your database import / export worked and was for the correct database!
