Here is the situation.
I have a local webserver and a remote webserver.
Both will be identical except that one is on VMware and one is a hosted web server.
I want to replicate EVERYTHING installed on the local server (settings, applications- mysql, apache, the cron jobs, and all the data and files - php) to be on the live hosted web server. So that everything is identical and functions exactly the same.
I know I will probably have to do some changes of setting once it is live, for it to run correctly, but is there an easy and relatively fast way to do this?
I am new at this and never done this before.
Will I have to setup the server from scratch or can I clone or copy everything to the new server?
