Join Jen Kramer for an in-depth discussion in this video Moving your local site to a web-hosted environment, part of Installing and Running Joomla! 3: Local and Web-Hosted Sites.
- So, here we are, the website…that I've downloaded, I've totally migrated it to Joomla 3.…Doesn't it look awesome?…If you're wondering how I did this,…make sure you check out my other course,…"Migrating from Joomla 2.5 to Joomla 3.3,…and I'll walk you through all of the magic…that it took to migrate from one…version of Joomla to the other.…But in any case, I am now done with…that migration process here on my local machine…and now I would like to move this website…from my local machine back up to my web host.…The other kinds of cases where I might…want to do this, maybe I've built a website locally,…it's running great in my local environment…and I want to shlep it back up…to the web host, whatever it happens to be.…
So, what I'm going to do now is,…just like we've seen before, I need to gather…all my Joomla files and zip them together,…and send those up to the host.…I need to dump my database, here locally,…and then create a database, database user,…and database password, and send up all…the information from this local database…

Q: This course was updated on 05/30/2018. What changed?
A: Joomla no longer supports PHP 5.6 and lower and will issue an error message if it detects an outdated version on your host server. We added three videos that show how to resolve the error message, by updating PHP in your MAMP or WAMP stack.
