Noob: How to bring downloaded site into Local

I’ve downloaded my WP site from the server - all of public_html and contents. How do I import that to Local to fire up a local copy on my computer to work on? Thanks

I find the easiest way is to:

  1. Setup your local site as a fresh install
  2. replace the wp-content folder with your downloaded version
  3. Use WP Migrate DB to export your live site’s database and make sure you use the local url
  4. Using Adminer or SequelPro replace the local database with the downloaded SQL from the production site.

Hope this helps, and is clear… :slight_smile:
