In the sentence ...."configuration.php". No NOT replace this file on your host....... be ""configuration.php". Do NOT replace this file on your remote host...."

Copy the contents of your local MySQL database to the host MySQL database - an alternate way
When running Linux as I, use a convienient and fast way with mysqldump command. Open a terminal/shell to export database to databasename_date file.
machine: mysqldump -u username -p databasename >databasename_date Give the username password. username is normally "root".
To import to a remote mysql server you use mysql command:
machine: mysql -u remoteusername -p -h removemysqlservername remotedatabasename <databasename_date
Note that when importing you overwrite all tables within export file in database remotedatabasename. If you want to have a special table prefix other that standard "jos", you have to edit the exported file before importing.
