Getting login to stay local (5 posts)

    Alright so this has probably been posted a few times, but I've searched and haven't found the exact info I'm looking for. I have a WP site that I've been asked to update and bring back online after the hosting provider found a lot of activity on the site and shut it down as a precaution. So its not accessible online so I decided to back it up through cpanel and open/ edit it on WAMP. This is my first time doing it locally so after much hit and miss I got the DB's and site working correctly in WAMP. The only thing now is when I try and login it attempts to do it through the domain and not access it locally.

    http://localhost/santec/wp-login.php - Try and login and goes to...

    http://sunbec.com/wp-login.php - and gives me a service unavailable msg.

    Any ideas?

    Before importing the database to your WAMP , replace all http://sunbec.com with http://localhost/santec , Then import the database to you local WAMP.

    I just tried This Tutorial and I replaced the url in wp-options and the home table with http://localhost/santec/ and when i enter my usrnm and pswrd in the wp-login page at http://localhost/santec/wp-login.php it immediately goes to http://www.sunbec.com/wp-login which isn't live.

    Did I miss something?
