    Hey all,

    Just wondering if there are / would be any issues transferring a XF install from my localhost to a live domain / server ?

    It's just a lot faster working on my localhost then working on a live site.. So i am wanting to develop my project on my localhost and then once it's complete then transfer it to a live server / domain.

    Thanks in advance to anyone who takes the time to reply to this question, It's greatly appreciated.

    Regards, Darren

    Brogan explained how to do so here. It seems quite easy.

    Hi Darren,

    Transferring from localhost to your server shouldn't cause any issues. But you should look at your site configuration settings and make sure you've configured friendly URLs correctly.

    You don't need to have exactly same database name and password because you can always change that in /library/config.php

    $config['db']['host'] = 'localhost';
    $config['db']['port'] = '3306';
    $config['db']['username'] = 'dbuser;
    $config['db']['password'] = 'dbpass';
    $config['db']['dbname'] = 'dbname';
    $config['superAdmins'] = '1';

    That's fine. I just directly quoted what Brogan said. ;)

    Its just the same as a normal domain to domain transfer, so nothing to worry about :)
