I am working for a client and I am trying to clone his website to my localhost. To do this, I made database backup using wp-db manager plugin (Lester Chan’s), downloaded the DB, make a new database using Phpmyadmin and import the one I have downloaded (the website-to-clone’s database).
Then in Phpmyadmin I go to the new database, choose wp_options and changed the “siteurl” and “home” to http://localhost/.
In wp-config.php, I put this:
Well.. needles to say it doesn’t work :P. When I go to “http://localhost/wordpress/” it shows the new website in a broken form (like no CSS whatsoever) and if I go to “http://localhost/newly-created-database/” I got object not found error.
My questions are:
1. What did I do wrong?
2. As I said, this is a client’s website and he has lots of plugins and modifications on his theme. Is there something that possibly would interrupt in this cloning process? If there is, where should I look?
Thanks in advance.
