I need to copy a client's WordPress site onto my host's server. This website is for development purposes and I will give it a new URL.
I have a copy of the wordpress/html files, but not the database. I don't need the database. I will use a new one - not worried about their existing content.
I understand I can move all of the wordpress/html files onto my host's server, but is there a correct way to do this? I assume moving the files alone will not work, and something else will need to be done...not sure what that is though.
