I just started using DotNetNuke for the first time about a week ago...I'm amazed at how easy it is to use the modules to design a personal web site. However, I've run into a problem; I created a web site on my local computer. I made a backup of my local
SQL Server database and restored it to my hosted database.
When I tried to open the hosted site, it opened without too many problems but it appeared to be missing some modules and images. So, I FTP'ed my project to the site (which took a LONG time, by the way). I am now getting an error page that says, "You are
not authorized to view this page".
So, my questions for doing local development and deploying to a host:
1A) Although there were some inconsistencies the site was not displaying an error page, BEFORE I uploaded my project. So, why would the solution work on my local pc and not on the hosted site?
1B) If I create a module, what tables should I copy from my local DotNetNuke database?
2) Is copying tables from the database sufficient to get the pages or site deployed?
3) I haven't created any custom code yet so, what files in the DotNetNuke project should I copy to my database (other than images that I've added to the project)?
4) Is there any documentation on the DotNetNuke web site (or anywhere) that would lend some insight and generally make this less painful?
Forgive me for these novice questions.

Hi Dexter - I covered this in my newsletter this week - about deploying a site that's done locally.
You might like to pick up a few pointers from it since it's a common challenge for newcomers to dnn.
