    Howdy!

    What are you using for your local installation? This will greatly help in guiding you in the right direction too

    If your local installation has wp cli installed

    the it is far easier to use the wp command line – less chance of making and error

     wp search-replace --precise 'https://example.test' 'http://localhost'
    

    see https://developer.wordpress.org/cli/commands/search-replace/

    hi

    I’m using Xampp 3.2.2. I don’t think I have wp cli.

    Before I proceed to use your above solution, let me put in a proper perspective of the issue. I mange to follow/execute instructions as laid out- quite well until a particular step ,it bypasses the installation of wordpress nor prompt me for database name etc . Thereafter when I run the step for wp install page it says WordPress already installed. When I run localhost/test site 1, there are partial or faulty display of the site without the post.
    When I run localhost/test site 1/wp-admin ; the error:

      Object not found!
      The requested URL was not found on this server. If you entered the URL manually please check your spelling and try again.
      If you think this is a server error, please contact the webmaster.
      Error 404

    By the way I can’t send the file of complete screenshot or error msg for your easier understanding unless you have alternatives.
