    Hi guys,

    I have been looking for over 4 hours but can't find what I am missing!

    I am trying to install my blog locally. Everything is working fine except I have no images and my theme is not set up locally.

    What am I missing here?? I think I am supposed to go to phpmyadmin on MAMP and replace the URL of my blog for the local URL but it's not working. I have tried several times but obvisouly I am not doing the right thing...

    Thanks for your help :)

    Well, have you read my post?

    This tutorial explains you how install wordpress locally. This part is working on my end, I just don't have any images and no theme.

    What site urls are you using?

    My blog: http://www.example.com/blog and http://localhost:8888/wordpress

    I have tried to run it in Phpmyadmin to change every url but it's not working.

    It says something like "0 rows changed in 0,00005 sec".

    I have been able to manually download every images from NexGen Gallery though. Not sure if that can be automatically done.

    But when I have backed up my wordpress database, everything came back smoothly except the images. It says it was unable to back them up.

    it sounds like you are running two different things here...

    in order to run a site locally you would need to create a folder within the htdocs folder of MAMP called "mysite". ( of course, you would change that to whatever you wanted to call your site.

    Then inside that folder you would place all of the WP files ( not the folder, unless you wanted the end result of your local install to be "mysite/wordpress"). Once you have done that, go to PHP myadmin and create a database to use with your new site. make note of the database name, database username and the password.

    Now you can go back to your site( via a browser) at localhost:88888/mysite and simply follow the prompts and instructions to finish the install of WP. Once done, you will see your finsihed site at localhost:8888/mysite, just like it would show on a hosting providers service.

    Hopefully that helps,

    Al

    Yep exactly what i did and everything is working fine except for whatever reason the images I had on my original blog. I have been able to manually retrieve the one from nexgen gallery though.
