Decided to jump on the bandwagon and give MAMP a try. I successfully created my PL site, imported my files and db to my host server using MAMP and Transmit.

However, local changes have since been made to the local files. I uploaded the wp-content and wp-includes using a ftp transfer via Transmit. I can see the updated files sitting on my server, however, they're not displaying on my live website. (Cache has been cleared).

Am I missing a step (or two or three) somewhere? Would really like to get the hang of this so I can actually start being productive instead of spinning my wheels. Ugh...

Thanks in advance for your patience...and support!

Hi James,

I did follow the import-export steps to transfer from one site to another. None of the content or images carried over but it doubled everything in my menu and nav bar.

Are there other folders I should be transferring as well? I continue to make updates to the site on my localhost (pressing deadline looming) but I need to figure out this problem soon.

Should I just delete the db and start over? Ugh.
