    Using WAMPSERVER for windows 7, smartgit and Safe Search Replace I have done the following steps:

    Pulled a wordpress code from a github repository using smartgit
    Downloaded the database from the server’s phpmyadmin
    Imported it to my localhost’s phpmyadmin using WAMP.
    Replaced the strings from to

    The home page of the website works on the localhost but when I click on one of the menu links I get the WAMP homepage instead of the actual page.

    On the wordpress dashboard, I have checked and the URL on pages has been changed to which is a good sign.I have also checked in the database the actual name of the the page and even the page did showed a WAMP home page.

    I have tried renaming index.php to index.php.old and replacing it with the index.php from the root folder of a fresh download of WordPress but it did not help.

    What have I done wrong and what can I check to solve the issue?
