I am troubleshooting a live wordpress site that I developed a custom theme for. I am new to wordpress but have followed the forums during development. I built the site locally using MAMP then launched through bluehost and now have exported the current live version back to local for further development.
I have exported the database and setup local version on my desktop using MAMP. I have change wp-config to recognize local database and wp_options (line 1 and 37) to read /localhost/...
I can navigate site locally with current theme. However, I cannot login to wp-admin and access dashboard. I get the wp login screen but not able to login with localhost information.
Is it possible to use the wp dashboard local copy of a live site?
I need to make major changes to the current theme because the comments do not work and would like to do this on localhost with access to dashboard.
