move magento 2.1.7 from localhost to live server

Hi,

 

I have been playing around with Magento, and I have started to work on it.

 

I am going to work on a local installation using XAMPP, and when the website is finished, I will move it to the live server.

 

I have tried to do this step, to check that it is possible and that it works. But it didn't work.

 

Is there an instruction guide or something like that so I can follow it to do this thing?

Hi Robert,

 

All you have to do to move Magento store from one server to another:
- copy files and database

- update config file with new database location in app/etc/env.php

- change host in core_config_data table to new domain/IP

 

some times you may need to do this:

php bin/magento indexer:reindex

php bin/magento cache:flush

 

also setting files ownership if php is running under a different user

 

or just get somebody who does that for a living and use your time on something more productive Smiley Happy
