I'm a very inexperienced wordpress user so any help would be appreciated. I starting to build a site and want a local copy so I can edit.
I have installed a local copy of my wordpress site but every time I access it, it goes back to the online version, these are the steps I have completed can anyone see if i've missed anything.
- FTP transfer of online site http://www.stuartedwards.net and saved these inside my home folder... Local Website/wordpress_local.
-Installed MAMP and have setup the Apache server to look at the above location.
-Created a database locally in phpMyadmin called wordpress_local and have exported my online version from hostgator and imported tables into local copy.
-Local copy of wp.config.php has these settings:
// ** MySQL settings - You can get this info from your web host ** //
/** The name of the database for WordPress */
/** MySQL database username */
/** MySQL database password */
/** MySQL hostname */
I can access a clean install of wordpress locally no probs I just having a drama trying to copy what I've done on the hosted version to be the same locally. Everytime I access localhost:8888 it takes me to my site but then as soon as I click on a page it just reverts to the online version.
