I need my files now in my root directory.
after i ftp, then i do the export/import for the MySQL.
is there a list of more things i need to do since i am uploading into a different directory other than the xampp wordpress directory?
thank you for your help
No need to double/triple post in these forums it is deemed to be bad forum etiquette like posting in all caps which is deemed to be shouting, also bad etiquette is cross posting which is posting to multiple forums within the same main forum.
I think you are fully aware or forum etiquette being a member of a large amount of forums.
A google search for sbboyd
reveals a lot about you!
You also seem to be quite aware of the proceedure your questions relate to here.
After all in some of your forum profiles your occupation is down to being a "webmaster".
Another profile shows Occupation:
Free Lance Web Designer, Internet Marketer, Student.
You have also been very active on ebay, so your not as green as you are trying to make out to be.
Your posts at StarLogic seem to indicate you are fully aware of how to upload a web site and/or transfer files.
I hope your repeated questions in these forums are not related to a crude attempt at signature spam.
I posted an answer that covers this double/triple post here:

If this subject is all too much for you then I suggest you use the forums related to the software you are using ie. the wordpress forums.
These forums are for XAMPP issues and from your posts it appears that XAMPP is working as it should and your questions have nothing to do with XAMPP.
Google is my friend.
