I’m trying to create an identical copy of my live site on my local server so I can use it for development. I installed XAMPP (on Win7). I can get WordPress running, but as soon as I try to set it up as a network install it fails. (I’m also building the database by importing the backup from the live site, if this matters.)
I’ve double checked that wp-config.php has the correct database values, changed the server to localhost, etc., the user has all permissions, etc. But as soon as I try to install a subdomain based network I get this:
Firefox has detected that the server is redirecting the request for this address in a way that will never complete.
I’m fairly sure this has to do with settings in Apache I may need to configure, but I’m not finding any tutorials about installing networks on localhost. I did find references to the requirement that wordpress be installed at the root, and I’m wondering if installing it here:
is the problem. That maps to localhost/mywordpress, which isn’t exactly root, but I’m not sure what the equivalent of root would be for my localhost installation. I’m guessing that may be an apache configuration too…
Can anyone point me to a tutorial, resources, or otherwise help me move forward on this project?
