I am the admin of a forum and I want to be able run my VBulletin on my computer, so I can play around with layouts etc without upsetting the online version.
I have Xampp 1.7
I have a backup of all my VBulletin files and a backup of the SQL database.
I can import the database successfully through myphpadmin and I copied the forum files into the htdocs folder.
but when I try to load the forum in my browser it just sits there and does nothing.
I know I probably only missing something simple and im sure this can be done, if anyone has any ideas that would be appreciated.
