I took a backup of my live website DB tables, installed a fresh 3.7 WP installation(new 'test' folder) on XAMPP with a new database, keeping the tables in new DB as is, i imported the live website tables into it.
now my problem is that:
1. when i go to http://localhost/test/ i find a white screen.
2. when i visit localhost/test/wp-admin or localhost/test/wp-login.php, it takes me to the 'live' site login page - say http://example.com/wp-login.php.
can somebody tell me whats going wrong?
localhost and 127.0.0.1 gives same result
UID, pass, server, etc - are good.. i installed it, imported db and then face this problem.
$table_prefix was different (say wp_test_) but i made sure its changed before installation
i tried using same admin username and different in seperate installs - no results
php.ini files are proper and its a clean import of all 28 tables
