I am currently following along with a course on Udemy learning how to program. (doesn’t really matter) I work on the local website that I have setup in two different locations. The first location is at home on my Desktop. The second location is at work on my laptop. I’m trying to figure out a way to transfer the files for my website to and from each device. I have tried exporting and importing. That worked for the initial setup, but after that it doesn’t transfer over the Pages, Posts, or virtually anything that you create within the Wordpress Dashboard. I’m assuming, those files would be located in the Database… But I’m unsure where the Database files are and I’m even more unsure if these files would even be IN the Database. I currently don’t want to pay for the Pro package for something I could spend a little extra time doing myself. I just need to be pointed in the right direction for transferring the files.
My current routine is the following:
(Vice versa from desktop to laptop, depends which one I begin on, of course.)
On my laptop –
Users\username\Local Sites\ I zip the entire website file.
I then add that zip file to a flash drive.
Then I extract the file from the flash drive onto my Desktops file location : Users\username\Local Sites
Replacing all the files. Doing this, it carries over everything expect the Pages, Posts, etc. of the Wordpress Website. (apologies if this is redundant and if it’s already been answered elsewhere.) Thanks in advance!
