  • Resolved Servant


    I’m sure that the instructions for this are listed somewhere, but I just can’t seem to find them. I’ve installed Xampp Lite and got a copy of WP running on my local machine, but my live blog has been going for a few months. Can someone point me to the instructions for copying my live DB into this local one so I can have a local copy of the blog? Thanks!

    Yup 🙂

    You’ve essentially just got to export (backup) the database from your online blog, then import (restore) that file into your Xampp blog.
    I’ve some info here which whould help:
    Look bottom left and top right.

    OK…I followed the instructions for a backup and then a restore, but the local copy is running the live blog. Any help would be much appreciated.
