Cannot login to my local wordpress after uploading to live server (4 posts)

    I uploaded my website from a local server yesterday and run into some problems. I did a search and replace to change the url. After that, I could no longer log into my wordpress dashboard for the live server hosted at Hostgator or my localhost on my mac where I built the website.

    I called Hostgator, they were able to help me get back into wordpress hosted with them, but I cannot log into wordpress on my Mac. The support person said I will need to repair the Hosts file on your local machine.

    I am not sure exactly what I have to change once I go there?

    I looked at moving_wordpress but I could not see anything that would help me learn to change the Hosts file.

    WordPress has nothing to do with your local hosts file. Try asking on a Mac-specific forum.
