WP Migrate DB
[resolved] Import successful, but no change to local site (5 posts)

    I exported the database from my production site and imported the sql file to my local db. But when I go to the WP admin of the local site, it's as if nothing happened. Nothing from the prod site is there. What am I doing wrong?

    Sounds like you might have different databases prefixes configured in your wp-config.php.

    Brad, thanks for the quick reply.

    I changed the table prefix in config.php to match the prefix of the imported files. Then I used the login from the prod site to get into the local page. All good. Pages are there. But when I try to view or preview the pages, I get a 404 page not found.

    Any ideas?

    Are you able to visit Options -> Permalinks and save your permalink structure.

    The permalink option should match that of the site you exported.

    Please let me know if that helps at all.

    Hey, thanks, Chris. I got it working. I had to start over with a new export, but it's working now. Thanks again.
