Hello,
I am brand new to bitnami and wordpress. I built a wordpress site and attempted to upload the wordpress content via ftp. Now I can no longer open the site via local host nor can I establish a connection online. My hosting site is telling me I need to export my database which I cannot find…I followed online tutorials for this and it did not mention this step. I am afraid I have lost all of my work. Can anyone tell me if there is a way to salavage and locate my database to upload with the rest of my content?

Try to create a database backup of your wordpress installation and upload to your hosting server http://wiki.bitnami.com/Components/MySQL#How_to_create_a_database_backup.3f

It is important that you modify the URL previously. For instance, if you are working in your computer you probably have the 127.0.0.1 in your URL or 192.168.X.X. In the following how to you can see how to configure the URL in the database http://wiki.bitnami.com/Applications/BitNami_Wordpress_Stack#How_to_change_the_default_URL.3f

Thank you, the problem is I know next to nothing about programming. If I attempt this back up where do I type that mysql dump code? Is it possible I lost all of my data?

Hi,

There is no problem to run in your machine, you will get a file with a dump of your database. If you upload to your hosting you will lose your hosting database.
