Publishing Site to New WP Install

Hello friends,

I have developed a site locally via Local. I have hosting with WPEngine. I would like to push this WP install to a new install in WPEngine.

Do I add a new site (WP install) in WPEngine, or can local create the install itself?

If my credentials are different for WPEngine and LocalWP, will that cause issue?

System Details

  • Local Version:
    8.2.1+6583

  • Operating System (OS) and OS version:
    WIndows 10

Hello there @WillHei - thank you for your question & welcome to the community! :wave:

We actually have a beta version of Local available that will make this process much simpler and straightforward such that you can connect your WP Engine account and create a new install in WP Engine, all from Local.

However, if you don’t want to wait for that release, I would suggest you follow these steps:

  1. Create a new install in WP Engine

  2. Push this local site to the new WP Engine install via Local Connect.

There should not be an issue with your credentials - but do you have a specific concern?
