I'm a newbie at web development. I want to mirror my live wordpress site onto a local development server with MAMP. I have successfully installed and configured MAMP (document root: /Applications/MAMP/htdocs) and added a folder local_db, to which I have copied the contents of my live site's public_html folder. I created a database in MAMP called local_db and imported my live site's .sql database. I edited config-php to reflect my local server, user and password, and I used a script from this website: to change http://mylivesite.com to http://localhost:8888/local_db in all my files. My actual website appears to work correctly on my local server, including links, but the wordpress dashboard lacks all CSS and doesn't work right. The URLs in General>Settings are correct for the local server. I'm stumped.
I'd really appreciate any help- thanks!
