Going live from MAMP to Web

Hi. I've just finished building a site locally using the software MAMP. On MAMP I had Wordpress installed.
Within my local phpMyAdmin on MAMP I exported the file into a SQL file. In it, I replaced all the Local URLS with the live site URLs.

I then went to my hosting site (Dreamhost)'s phpAdmin and imported the SQL file. I also installed WP on the site through Dreamhost prior.

I then uploaded through FTP all the WP files from my local server onto the live server. I then changed my wp-config.php file to match the log in infomation from the database.

When I go to the site, it is styled correctly but none of my pages or any content exists. What am I doing wrong??

You may have missed a couple of links in the database.  There are 2 in 'wp_options' and every row in 'wp_posts' has a link.

I'm a graphic designer just learning web design and wordpress. I'm not totally sure what you mean. Would you mind elaborating? Thankyou so much!

You said you "replaced all the Local URLS with the live site URLs" and I'm saying you may have missed some.  Take another look and see if there are any more.
