Localhost with MAMP - can't access imported database (3 posts)

    I'm using MAMP on a Mac. I want to create a localhost as a backup/testing site for my live site. I've got all my files set up, can see my home page, set up the database, no errors (or none I couldn't fix) and everything's working fine - except none of my posts (or other info) is showing up in the Dashboard or on the site.

    The database is working fine on PHPMyAdmin, I've got the right table prefix set. I've searched and searched and found other people with this same problem, but no solution.

    Anybody know how to do this?

  2. Can you add a new post?

    Good question - yup, can add new posts just fine.

    I wish there was a good tutorial in the Codex for this. Lots of info on how to move a site, under many different circumstances - which is something I have yet to do, and hope to never to - but the documentation is very sparse (or non-existent?) on synching sites, which is something I'd like to do on a regular basis, and I think lots of other folks would to.

    I've got a local version of my site, and a staging version, and though I've managed to keep the content and .php files up to date, the database - not just the posts, but the menus, permalinks, plug-in settings, etc - have gotten totally out of synch with the live version. Would be great to just be able to synch up the databases as needed...
