After exporting the site into a zip file, how do I import to Wordpress?

Issue Summary

This is my first time using Local and Wordpress and I am stuck on how to migrate from Local to Wordpress.

My client has an outdated site on Wordpress, and I am looking to overwrite it with the site I created using a theme/elementor on Local. When I export it creates a zip file/folder, and when I try to import that on Wordpress it says it is not WXR/XML. What steps do I take from here?

@mkfrechette Are you trying to migrate this to a specific host? Is this on or elsewhere? Depending on the host, they may have specific guides or support for migrating that you could review for help but keep us posted if you’re able to shed some more light on this.
