Accepted Answer

  1. Database. You have to export your database from your local machine to the remote one (using phpMyAdmin for example)
  2. Copy files. Copy your local files to the remote server. (using FTP for example)
  3. Configuration files check. Some paths are hardcoded in it, and database credentials might be changed.
