I am new to WP and have set up WPMU with 4 sites on my localhost with MAMP (free version) to start with. I really like this setup, it is responsive and if something goes wrong, it is not affecting the external world. Now as the sites are growing, the next step I need to think of is how to deploy my sites and afterwards download to and upload from the hosted server (with a provider) when I do further iterations of my site.
I understand that links and other references in general are causing problems when "moving" an installation between a local host and a server. Can I use cloner in my workflow later or do I need to choose another tool as Serverpress? What are my options? Which links and references are problematic and are there any tools to get links right after making the move?
Sorry for this very generic and specific question, but I think it is also interesting for other users that want to move beyond a basic Wordpress configuration.
