I'm positive I've successfully done this before but in testing a project today from a localhost Development (Ubuntu) to a live Production server (shared server, general market provider ala Bluehost) I'm getting a White Screen Of Death (WSOD) after importing the main filename.sql via phpmyadmin and I'm not sure why it's not working correctly.
Here's what I'm doing:
1) - copy via FTP all core and /sites/modules and my relevant dir contents.
2) - setup all Database with user/passwords including Admin as required.
3) - install generic Drupal v.7.2x onto server using Drupal /install.php
this then gets me a 'Standard' install but without all my data content but all accessable as per a generic standard Drupal install.
Next, back to phpmyAdmin, go to the relevant DB structure and chose 'Import', because I'm using a raw. sql I can just select the 22.5mg .sql file and wait, then I get the 'Success' message. I cannot use Backup & Migrate (M&G) Module due to the file limitation given my B&M.
After this point, I get a WSOD and cannot move forward.
The only thing I know that is different is that on my locahost Dev I used a simple 'Admin' name and a simple Password such as 'DeadEasy'. On the live Prod site, I changed this for better security to a name relevant to a SuperUser (ie AlphaBravoCharlie,(thats NOT real!!), Password: such as "DrG6%7DyE".
FYI, I did have some Fatal Errors yesterday based on Memory allocation, (I'm allowed 128meg max) but the example highlighted here is after I reduced module load to resolve the previous fatal error given.
Can anyone shed any light on what may have happened?
Notes #1: I had thought it may have been that I hadn't uploaded my 'sites/all/themes', but it wasn't. #2 any other 'test' index.html work fine (as in temporarily disabling the index.php).
