Duplicator
[resolved] localhost install links not displaying correctly (2 posts)

    Have used Duplicator 0.5.2 to copy a published wordpress site in order to run a copy locally for playing with some design updates.

    Installation on a localhost database I created with MAMP on my Mac appeared to work perfectly at first - the homepage shows up perfectly, but clicking through on any of the links either displays pages and posts without proper layout/formatting, or simply sends me back to the online site version of that post instead of the new localhost address.

    Not sure if it's a database/php issue, whether I should look for redirects somewhere in my sites files, or whether its more simply a case of changing my permalink settings in the final installation step.

    Any help very much appreciated! Thanks :)

    Hey shrinestudio,

    Checkout this section on the FAQs I believe it may help with this issue:
    -> Browse to: http://lifeinthegrid.com/duplicator-faq
    -> Find section: "2. Installer=> Post Install"

    You may have to double-check your wp-config.php and .htaccess file

    Hope that helps!
