[Resolved] localhost admin login redirects to live site admin area???

  • I converted an existing site into a cms using WP locally, tested it and it worked fine. Then I published a version of this site on the internet. I was having problems with the permalinks, and trying things with .htaccess. I think in the process, I deleted my .htaccess file from my local site. Now when I try to login in to my local admin area, I get redirected to the live site! and my local site pages link to the live site (with pages not found). How do I fix this mess?

    You might need to go in your database and make sure that the right url in in your wp_options table.

    Look for site_url and home. They should have the localhost url and not the live site.

    Thank you. That worked. I have no idea how the urls got switchedm but problem solved.
