I have been working on localhost with a theme that was already installed on live server. After i completed my mods, uploaded the files to themes folder in wp-content but to my disappointment, the same old non-customized theme was showing up. Then I thought if I add my custom css codes to css editor then it will work fine but even after that nothing was showing up and I ended up with a totally messed up site. I tried to empty all the caches but still no luck. Before installing my custom theme, I actually deleted all the files associated with the old theme and then re-installed my own custom theme. For the sake of information, I am using Genesis Framework and I modified Genesis Sandbox HTML5 child theme. It works like a magic on my localhost but I don't know how to get it working.

Please help me. Any help will be appreciated. Thanks for reading.

You need to update your database. Before updating your database to the live server, you need to verify the URL.
