I'm attempting to install a WP site to a local host that I had backed up from an automated backup plugin. I've had this site backed up on a hard drive since mid 2012 and would like to install it to a subdomain as an example of work. Unfortunately, I backed this site up before I knew anything about databases and how to migrate WP from one server (or a local host) to another server. I am now comfortable with that process. However, I seem to be having some difficulty establishing a database that is recognized by MAMP.
So far I have downloaded and installed WP to my local host.
I do have the original database name, UN, PW as retrieved from the wp-config.php file.
Unfortunately, this site is no longer available on a live server. I am only working with the downloaded WP files.
