im trying to move my wordpress site from my local MAC server to the net and make it  live. I'm new to this so i have been relying on Youtube and Google.  I used this info to help me:  http://www.slideshare.net/Miriam6142/from-local-to-live-exporting-wordpress-from-mamp.
The step by step calls for using Cyberduck, but i keep getting this error code after i enter my local server info from MAMP.

I presume that you entered the MAMP server info posted in the screenshot above as connection details for Cyberduck?
That is wrong. Those are the connection details for when you connect to your local MAMP from your local computer.

For Cyberduck you need the FTP credentials for your web page/domain. You will find those credentials if you login to your web provider's control panel and search for "FTP". It should be something along the line:

Server: ftp.yourdomain.com
User: FTP username (as given by your provider or created by yourself)
Pass: Password (as given by your provider or changed by yourself)

If you still can't get it to work, check whether your hosting provider, on his website or in the hosting panel, offers a FAQ or tutorial section; they mostly do. This should explain everything in detail, including the way to find your FTP login credentials for that specific hoster.

I don't think that there could possibly be a more step-by-step guide than the one that you are already following. The author only made the mistake to presuppose that readers know how to operate a FTP client; the rest, however, offers a surprising amount of detailed explaining.

You could, by the way, save yourself all the trouble if you created your Wordpress site directly on the host. If you only made a couple of pages, consider recreating them on the web. Many hosting providers these days offer even one-click premade installations of Wordpress from inside the control panel, so you wouldn't even have to do that yourself.
