I did exactly what you told me. However I am still getting some nagging errors like the permalink not working.
These are some of my observations -
Â» wordpress database in collation - works only on the home page. WordPress database in utf8_unicode_ci - works fine but no permalink. I might be doing something wrong while exporting/importing the original database, which I want to integrate into my local copy of WordPress. Some more steps which I took.
â€º Export from original database in SQL format
â€º Import into local machine via phpMyAdmin
â€º change the URL under wp_options Â» site
â€º change the URL under wp_options Â» home
â€º Copy all the original files into the WP copy on the local machine
â€º activate the plugins via the dashboard. They are in conjunction with the original copy.
This is all that I do and still the home page & the 'previous/next page' links seem to be working fine. I don't get the rest of the links (archive, comments, categories) to work even though the database has the content (it gives me the same error that I posted in my earlier post).
Apache/2.0.54 (Win32) mod_autoindex_color mod_ssl/2.0.54 OpenSSL/0.9.8 PHP/5.0.4
I am sure I am doing something wrong and I need someone to tell me that :-(
