Thanks for looking at my post. I’m interested in learning how to transport a local Drupal 8 site to a remote location, and vice versa. I noticed an informative page in the official Drupal site. Here it is for reference:
The only problem is I’m stuck on one of the points and don’t understand what to do. I was able to accomplish 1-3. Now, when it comes to number 4 it says;
4. Create a fresh database on your remote server and do a fresh install of Drupal.
I created a fresh database on the remote server, no problem. The part I don’t understand is to do a fresh install of Drupal. I already have my site files uploaded to the server as it says in instruction #2. So, why do I need a whole new set of new Drupal files on my remote server?
Then in instruction #5 it says:
5. Export the configuration via /admin/config/development/configuration/full/export
Is this the configuration for the fresh install, or the already existing site that I uploaded previously?
Thanks so much for your help on this!
