[SOLVED] Scared to move site from my computer to host

I have built a new web site using - I think - Atahualpa version 3.1.9. Up until now, I was able to resolve all my issues just by reading forum posts.

I've created the site in a local wordpress installation on my computer using wampserver. Tomorrow I was going to upload it to my lunarpages host, and have studied for a week on how to do that. Just when I was feeling pretty confident about that going well, some threads on the forum have me very concerned that I will run into problems. These fears were greatly compounded by threads here about problems when upgrading to 3.2.

One issue relates to the sticky post about if you downloaded Atahualpa 3.1.9 from Wordpress.org (as I did), that the folder was called /atahualpa, when it should have been called /atahualpa3. My theme folder is /atahualpa. Should this not be a problem as long as I forget upgrading for now?

I have promised the client that the site will be online by tomorrow. I would appreciate any advice on how to proceed.

I have made a lot of changes in the theme, as it is a site, not a blog; I have read that any changes made in the change screens will hold, but I know I've made other code changes in the "Editor" section. Reading this thread: http://forum.bytesforall.com/showthread.php?t=117 has made me very fearful that just moving it to the host will mess up the site, even if I avoid the added potential problems of upgrading.

At this point, since getting it online before the client freaks out is the main problem I face, I will postpone for now any thoughts of upgrading. So perhaps Flynn or someone else could just advise me as to the basic procedure they would follow to move the blog to the host without screwing up the changes I've made to the theme.

Thanks very much!
