    cloning remote site to my local mamp server

    i receive the “error 500 internal server error”

    need help please!

    While cloning the following remote wordpress site to my local MAMP server.


    I ftp'd all my remote files to my local folder at MAMP/htdocs/photographybethesda/

    I exported my marklove_wor1 db from the remote site, created a database in mamp phpMyAdmn with the same name, and imported the marklove_wor1.sql file, then ran the following SQL query:

    UPDATE wp_options SET option_value = 'http://localhost:8888/photographybethesda'

    The db appeared to load successfully however in addition to the 12 wp_ tables there are 12 scq_ tables as well and I dont know if this is correct.

    Changed the user and password to root, and put the DB_name as marklove_1 in my
    wp-config file.

    When I type the following url in my browser I received the “internal server error 500” 'http://localhost:8888/photographybethesda'

    In addition, in Dreamweaver I get the error Dynamically related files can not be resolved because of an internal server error.

    Thanks very much for your assistance,

    Try using


    to migrate from your host to your local PC, it works most of the time.

    Thank you very much. I tried the Duplicator plugin and it seems to do the trick. Sweet!
