I have been working on the personal site starter Kit for a while now. It worked fine while in development stages. However, once I loaded the file on the server many things no longer work. For example the album page is there but no albums to view.
The login is available but it does not work. If there are some basic thengs that I should know about the database pior to upload please advise.
I think that one of my problems is that my hosting company does not allow remote database connection.
Please take a look and the site and advise.
Thanks for your time.

Well the first thing you need todo is move your database across to the hosting.

Thanks Jeremy for your reponse. It has cleared many thing up for me. However, as I follow the procedure step by step I am seeing something that is not in the tutorial. I have created a couple of screen images that will explain what I saw better. I think
that the problem may be that I have Visual studio installed as well.
Thanks for your help!

The first thing todo is to move the database to a new folder where the path is much shorter, then retry.
