WebFaction
Community site: login faq

So, I'm brand new to Webfaction and to WordPress as well. I've been designing a couple sites locally with MAMP. I've purchased a domain name already. My question is, what are the steps involved in moving sites locally, from MAMP, to the Webfaction servers? I've read some differing answers, but am just looking for something a little more concrete and straightforward. Thank you!

Our Inbound Migration Guide is the most straightforward and concrete guide we have on this topic. It covers every step of the process, with links to other parts of our user guide for each major detail along the way. The guide even has a dedicated section for Wordpress.

Some examples of working configurations might help. You don't need to start with anything fancy - a Simple Website configuration will be fine.

This may seem a bit much to move a site, but we're trying to be thorough. The reality is that it comes down to only a few steps:

  1. Point your domain to WebFaction
  2. Create an application (Choose "Static/CGI/PHP" if you want a completely empty directory)
  3. Create a website record (which connects your domain to application).
  4. Upload your application files

It's pretty much that simple. You'll likely have questions along the way, so you can open a support ticket if that's the case.

Hope that helps!
