WordPress Transfer

Hi Experts,

Tomorrow I need to transfer a new WordPress site from my localhost to live, and I wanted to get some feedback on the easiest way to this, including design, content and settings?

In my mind I need to

1- Install WP Live
2 - From local export the db as .sql
3 - Within .sql search and replace http://localhost with http://www.domain.com, then replace the db on live site.
4 - FTP my parent and child theme
5 - FTP my content directory
6 - Install any plugins

Am I missing anything?

Thank you,
Comment
