    Hello everyone.

    About me:

    A little bit about me before starting the thread:
    My name is Fadi, I've been a gamer for a really long time (DOTA is an addicting game!), I'm also a pianist.
    I've always been in BHW reading methods without taking actions... I've been doing that for about 2 years.

    Last week I had a piano concert, and I met a very charming girl, not giving too much details because I'm afraid someone I know will read this thread and know who the girl is ^_^. After meeting this girl, I started looking forward on my life, and decided that its best for me to quit gaming and start doing something useful, and by that I mean making some money.

    And this is how it all started...

    Last week I finally decided to go and take action! I have been researching and reading a lot in the past week, and been struggling a lot to find solutions!

    Method:

    My website is going to be about free TV shows to watch online, and of course, to be able to watch an episode, they need to finish a survey with a content lock.

    1) Update episodes every day and put it on my wordpress website.
    2) Upload a fake YouTube video with a title of "Game Of Thrones Season 3 Episode 5 part 1" (Of course I change the TV show name in each video) and put a link to direct them to my website in the description+video itself.
    3) Hope to get lucky and get my video indexed in the first page of the search.
    4) Profit!

    Things I have done so far:

    This is my first time creating a website all by myself, started with 0 knowlage, learned many things in 1 week, and this is what I have achieved so far:

    1) Created a Wordpress website from my local host, added 7 TV shows with their latest episodes.
    2) Signed up on a CPA company and got accepted.
    3) I put the content lock in all the pages where the embed episode is supposed to be.
    4) I bought a domain (1 year)+Hosting (3 months) and I accidentally bought an unlimited Website Builder, asked for a refund (goDaddy), hoping to get my money back.
    5) I have no idea how to upload my wordpress website from my localhost to the hosting I just purchased, so I'm uploading all of my wordpress files into the FTP client. It is transferring the files for 2 hours to far (That's why I decided to create this thread ^_^), Hoping that I'm transferring the files in the right folder or whatever. (Would like to know if I'm doing right, and if not, what should I do to upload my wordpress?)
    6) Made 2 YouTube videos to check if they will get indexed in the first page of the search, and both of them did :) (I have 4 accounts so far, I also create them manually from the same IP.. none of them are banned yet, even though I uploaded 2 videos 4 days ago)

    Programs used:

    - Sony Vegas 10 PRO.
    - My left hand.
    - My right hand.
    - My head.


    Yes, I am doing everything manually. Don't have much money to invest on programs and other stuff. I will work hard and do everything myself!

    I will update this thread everyday before going to sleep, with the daily earning, total earning, clicks and conversations.

    Thanks for reading my thread, hoping to succeed, and I WILL SUCCEED!

    Even if I won't, I will regret nothing... Its better to try and fail, than to have never try at all!

    PS: English is my 3rd language, I hope it was readable enough to understand.

    TIPS WILL BE APPRECIATED!

    Have a good day!

    Thanks guys! :)

    Maybe you could help me uploading my Wordpress into my host? I just finished transferring all of my wordpress file to this folder in my hosting but it did not work :( (The TV folder on the right, inside it there is another folder called "wordpress" and inside the wordpress file there is all the rest, posts, pages, etc...)

    gudluck! =) btw on transfering wordpress site from local to hosting...
    -make sure you change the permalink from "localhost/yoursitename.com" to "yourdomain.com" before you transfer it...
    -export the database(localhost at phpmyadmin) and import the db(hosting) make sure (you have the same db name,db user & db pass)
    -and thats it! =)

    I have a doubt.

    Will you provide them the real video after they complete the survey? or you will provide some fake video ?

    In that case, they will start posting bad comments in youtube that our site (domain) is fake and useless. So will you disable comments on YT? can you please elaborate?

    Editing my previous comment:
    When I change the permalink, I cannot access to my website at all using the localhost, because it is not uploaded to my website yet.
    This is a good sign? or I did something wrong?


    @accestation - My YouTube video will be like "This video has been removed due Copyright blah blah blah, Enter MyWebsite.com to watch the full episode online".
    And when they will go to my website and fill the survey, of course the episode will be there and they will enjoy their episode.


    Ignore the picture - don't know how to delete it -.-

    the permalink what im saying is in the wordpress url...
    Settings->General->Wordpress url and site address...
    In database...
    try to view/edit your wp-config-sample.php which is inside to your wordpress folder...put there the db name,user,pass that you use on your localhost...

    UPDATE:

    Today....was one of my worst days EVER!! Woke up at 8am, purchased the hosting, and from 8:30am until now 23:10pm (15 hours) and I'm only trying to upload my wordpress to the hosting!! I kept getting problem after problem after problem after problem after problem!!!!!! All my website got messed up, and I can't even open it in my localhost (Because of that Permalink messed everything up =\).

    Now I decided to remove everything I've done today, and start from scratch (re-installed XAMP, removed the databases and the wordpress files that I've uploaded), and right now I'm re-uploading everything and with less of a mess.

    The upload process will take around 2 hours, so I'll finally have time to go eat and drink! (I didn't even do a small break the whole day!)

    The day is not over yet! I got frustrated many times today and almost ripped my hair off, but I DIDN'T GIVE UP! I kept trying and still trying, because I know I will get it eventually!

    Sorry if you find this thread very noisy, told you I'm a newbie, first time doing it all by myself!

    Today was very hard, but I learned TONS of new things! The more I try the more I learn!

    Hoping my next update will be about my earnings!

    Thanks everyone! Keep digging hard!

    Are you uploading real videos to your site or they're just images so people complete your surveys?

    @Krypt - Real videos.

    I am freaking my mind out. I seriously need your help guys! I will post images and everything just to make it clear!

    I just uploaded my folder from my directory to my hosting: (see picture)

    e673a183e438433c7a6ad03565b9da63.png

    I changed my wp-config to my database information, tb_name, username, password and HOST name.

    Now whenever I enter my website, I get this:

    c71a5e68f5ba8ec4081f722bc999070f.jpg

    And when I change the link to tv/wordpress(My folders)/wp-admin, I get this:

    34e5f256168220a713b7d3197fc0c36a.jpg

    PLEASE someone tell me what I'm doing wrong!! I'm thinking about re-uploading the files again (for the 5th time) because they asked me earlier that I had a missing file, so I had to upload it manually which was weird. But now it seems that everything is uploaded. (I hope)

    Help would appreciate it so much! Thanks!

    EDIT: nevermind, re-uploaded all the files again and now back to the database connection error... Will find a way!
