[closed] Installing live site to localhost (3 posts)

    I've got a live site that's working perfectly, I've also got a local installation of XAMPP on my machine. I created a backup of the sites database and then installed it to PHPMyAdmin in XAMPP. I edited the 'siteurl' and 'home' values in the wp_options table so they match the correct location.

    Then I used FTP to copy the entire site from my hosting account to the 'htdocs' directory.

    When I visit the site on my localhost I get the following error at the top of all the pages:

    Warning: Cannot modify header information - headers already sent by (output started at C:\xampp\htdocs\techietalk\wp-content\plugins\theme-my-login\includes\widget.php:179) in C:\xampp\htdocs\techietalk\wp-content\plugins\theme-my-login\theme-my-login.php on line 379

    I keep getting these warnings, here's another one that cropped up in the Dashboard:

    Warning: Cannot modify header information - headers already sent by (output started at C:\xampp\htdocs\techietalk\wp-content\plugins\category-posts\cat-posts.php:451) in C:\xampp\htdocs\techietalk\wp-includes\pluggable.php on line 868

    Why is the locally stored version of my site throwing all these messages when the live site is fine? I'm confused!

    Solving "headers already sent" warnings

    You may have the same problems on your remote site but the warnings are being suppressed by the server.

    What was the problem in using the original thread you started for the same thing?

    Closing as duplicate, if you feel this is a new topic, state this in your other thread with the reasons and we can reconsider opening this one, if it is indeed not duplicative.
