[resolved] Moving my website from my hosting account to localhost (2 posts)

    I am having a problem with trying to load up my wordpress blog onto my localhost.

    Everything is connecting fine as far as the database and the files. When I try to pull up my blog on localhost using
    http://localhost/wordpress2

    It will pull up my blog using the online version and giving me a 404 error. So eesentially it is trying to connect to the web instead of staying local.

    My question is what do I have to change to keep it local instead of my blog trying to connect to the web. Currently I am looking for a new host for my site and want to test some new thing before I launch it live again.

    Any help would be appreciated.

    Do i need to change something in my database to keep from connecting to the web or what???

    Thanks

    I was looking around and I found my answer right here.

    This was exactly what i needed to do and the instructions are laid out perfectly.

    It never ceases to amaze me, but more than likely there is a tutorial for everything here.

    Thanks
