Hi Nagesh,

well from XAMPP side of view this is very easy:
  • Take all of your sourcefiles from htdocs you want to bring live
  • upload them to your live host
  • export your local database
  • reimport it on your live database
  • change all the application configurations in the configuration files and/or the database so that all fits with your live server (database login, url, etc)

The last point is the critical one, but because this is a pure wordpress issue, we can't give you any support for this.

best wishes,
We don't provide any support via personal channels like PM, email, Skype, TeamViewer!
