I am new to forum as a member, but was using the previously listed topics for my wordpress issues. The forums are very helpful.
But, on a little(but I was tired) search for my current issue could not get me any related topic.
So.. here is my issue.
I have started using Instant wp from a week or so, but, today when I setup a new Instant wp copy on my desktop, and imported the Backup – .xml,theme folder, and .sql file from the original site, then the site opened after a little header already bugs,
When I open WordPress Admin in Instant wordpress, it doesn’t accept the default “password” as the password.
It became a little more confusing, as the Username to the original site is same as the default username “admin” for instant wp.
My problem is : How do I log in to the local server copy of the original site?
Also when the Authentication window opens it opens in the local server as the address begins with :: “127.0 … .. “.
Is there something that I left to change, in the files that I imported?
I just changed the database name in the wp-config.php of local site.
Any help is appreciated and Thanks to all the brilliant brains here.
Upon reading, I myself couldn’t understand the problem.
Actually, in the Instant wordpress, when I try to log in with
Username : admin
Password : password
It shows me an error.
When I log in with
Username : admin
Password : (one with original site hosting)
It logs me in original wordpress site, and not in Localhost.
Username is same for both. Instant wp and original wp.
I want to use the Instant wp for my trial work, but how can I log into it?
I suggest doing a fresh install of wordpress on your local machine and not importing the sql from your live site.
If you must import the sql, you are going to have to do a search and replace for the url of the live site and change it to your local address.
And if you are using a clone of the database, then the username and password should be the same, make sure you have identical salts in your wp-config.php.
Thanks for your time.
I have tried re-installing, it actually works well before importing.
But, I want to test the current site, and add new plugins/modify theme in my local computer.
Do not I have to import .sql file?
I just made up a backup file of the active database from my Godaddy account, and as it goes I created a blank database and imported that .sql fine into it.
It worked fine. Site opens on localhost when I view wordpress frontpage, but.. it does not log me into local wordpress.
My motive is to migrate a current website, with a number of plugins to my local computer.
Its associated data base has a lot of tables for plugins, if I do not import that sql, it just don’t show the site correctly.
What should I do to achieve what I am trying to.
It’s redirecting you because it still has your original url in the database, like I said before, you are going to have to do a search and replace.
wp_client_imagesVALUES (21,17,’http://violethive.com/wp-content/themes/violethive/client/images/Screen Shot 2012-08-29 at 4.21.01 A’,1,’technology’),
I opened the .sql file in Notepad++, and on searching for violethive.com(original site name), it brought 610 entries related.
Should I change this address to my local themes folder?
I don’t know what is it going.
I have installed Instant wp in a new folder on the desktop.
I didn’t do any import of theme/plugins/sql, but this copy is also showing the wordpress login screen to my original domain.
It is showing a log of original site, over the login window.
Thanks for all the help.
But, I left that work, and re-installed Instant wp to new folder.
Now, upto this point I have imported:
1. Theme (by copying it in the instant wp-content folder)
2. Posts (by export/import in wp)
And, not to run in the same problem again, I would appreciate your details about how should I import my database of the original site?
The site has a number of plugins installed, I want them to be included and working in offline local site also.
I know need to import database, without it is showing the error ::
atal error: Call to undefined function shailan_dropdown_menu() in C:\Users\mahavir\Desktop\VijethPurli\iwpserver\htdocs\wordpress\wp-content\themes\violethive\header.php on line 191
Please, help on the matter.
I need to get it on my local wordpress.
I am just confused with what to change is .sql file.
<title>Business Hive</title> <link>http://violethive.com</link> <description></description> <pubDate>Sat, 15 Sep 2012 19:14:53 +0000</pubDate> <language>en-US</language> <wp:wxr_version>1.2</wp:wxr_version> <wp:base_site_url>http://violethive.com</wp:base_site_url> <wp:base_blog_url>http://violethive.com</wp:base_blog_url>
The .sql file have about 600 entries involving the “violethive.com”..
which ones to change and which ones not?
Any help on this matter?
I got the Theme and Post visible in http://127.0.0.1:4001/wordpress/,
But, the plugins(like slider in the header) and Images of the posts are not showing.
Are they in .sql file?
