Setting up a purchased Wordpress Website on your Hosting Server

  1. 1. ==== ====Visit Below For Authority Pro 2.0 Super Premium Wordpress Themewww.igorgentry.com/AuthorityTheme==== ====In the fist part of the article I described why Bob purchased the WordPress website, how totransfer the domain and the setting up of the domain on his hosting server. Part two will take acloser look on how to install the WordPress websites database and configure some importantWordPress Website settings.1. Upload the WordPress Database filesLets break this part down into 3 simple steps:a) Create the WordPress Database and access informationb) Modify the WordPress Database contentb) Upload the WordPress Database (cpanel)a) Create the WordPress Database and access information (cpanel)You could restore the database directly, but for this exercise Bob will also explain why he createdthe WordPress database himself. So here comes the tricky part. When you want to access theWordPress website, it will first try to connect to the WordPress database. The correspondingaccess information is stored in the wp-config.php file, located in the root directory of the newdomain. You can look it up in the WordPress directory files you got. Therefore, you will need tochange the following three variables inside the wp-config.php file:/** The name of the database for WordPress */define(DB_NAME, bob55_ akkingb);/** database username */define(DB_USER, bob55_ akdbadm);/** database password */define(DB_PASSWORD, xxxxxxxxxx);The DB_PASSWORD parameter I got is encrypted and of no use to me, therefore the connectionwill fail. To get around this problem bob will show you a little trick; Bob reused an existing user(and password) already assigned to another WordPress Database.
  2. 2. First he created the WordPress database, akkingb (in cpanel > Databases > MySql Databases)and added the EXISTING user to the new database(Scroll down to MySQL Users and add theuser bob55_ akdbadm to the database he just created, bob55_ akkingb, and assign ALLPRIVILEGES.Now you only needed modify DB_NAME parameter, copy the values for DB_USER andDB_PASSWORD from the wp-config.php file of your EXISTING WordPress Blog, and theconnection will work perfectly;-)So, download or extract the wp-config.php file for your new WordPress blog, change theparameters and upload it again.b) Modify the WordPress Database contentThere is some information in the WordPress Website that you can either modify later on, when youhave managed to access your new WordPress blog or change it directly in the WordPressDatabase file. I prefer to do the latter, as it is quite simple and a nice time saver when configuringthe WordPress Website.There are a few generic values that are used in diverse places so if you do a find/replace (all) its amatter of minutes to get this done. I will tell you what tables are affected, so you know where tolook and change it manually, but you can simply do a global change too:wp_options table - Change values of:- admin_email, --> your email.)- Path prefixes: home/uuuuuuuu/public_html --> home/bob55/public_htmlwp_users table: Change value of user_email field for the admin user so you will be able to havethe password reset send to your emailThats it!:-) The user_email is especially helpful if you do not know the WordPress websites adminpassword. Simply request the password to be reset and you will get the password send to theemail you chose;-)c) Upload the WordPress Database (cpanel)The important point here is to name the WordPress database sql file correctly. When restoring viathe cpanel it will use the database according to the WordPress database sql file name. Do NOTadd a database prefix, as this will be assigned automatically, and should be your hosting serverID; in Bobs case, bob55. Hence, Bob named his file akkingb.sql, and the resulting completedatabase name will be bog55_ akkingb.Bob had problems with WordPress Database restores when the file was not zipped in the correctformat. The restore either did not run at all or broke at any point. Therefore its a good idea to getthe free Gzip file compression utility. For more information go to gzip.org. The syntax is
  3. 3. "C:Program FilesGnuWin32bingzip.exe" DBname.sql" and this will convert the DBname.sql into aDBname.sql.gz file.To restore the WordPress Database, in cpanel, go the Files > Backup Wizard, select "Restore" >MySQL Databases, locate your local restore file, akkingb.sql.gz and click "Restore". Now a newbrowser window will open up and the DB restore should start within seconds.You know that the restore should have terminated correctly if you see the whole WordPressDatabase file on this page. You can verify the DB creation also through the cpanel > Databases >Php Admin panel. All your databases are listed on the left hand side.We are almost done!:-). You should now be able to see your new blog and enter the admin panelyourdomain/wp-admin.2. Configuring your WordPress WebsiteAny WordPress Blog configuration is different, but following letsl name just some of theWordPress Website settings..* WordPress SETTINGS*General:Membership: Anyone can registerTimezoneWriting:Remote Publishing: set both values active if you want to use external publishing toolsPrivacy: I would like my blog to be visible to everyone, including search engines (like Google,Bing, Technorati)Permalinks: you may want to change to i.e. /%category%/%postname%/ OR /%postname%.html,or any other values you use in your other blogsAll In One SEO PluginUse noindex for Categories: falseUse noindex for Archives: true* WordPress PLUGINS*Akismet Configuration: Enter YOUR Akismet API KeyRemove or add any other Plugins*OTHER setting and configurations*Copy your robots.txt to root folder or install the KB Robots.txt plugin
  4. 4. Monetizeation like AdSense, Amazon, will require even editing he corresponding theme files orconfiguration through plugins,...Thats it, your WordPress Website has been moved and setup on your hosting server:-).
