Is it just the HTML folder and MySQL database that need to be synced or am I missing something?

zenorb wrote:Q2.1: I was delighted to see how easy it seemed to be to create a local XAMPP copy of a production hosted Joomla install. I downloaded the HTML folder (copy to htdocs) and the SQL db. I got the database username and password from the configuartion.php file and was able to import the data using PHPMyAdmin and voila an exact local high speed copy of my Joomla site - perfect, almost. Only problem is the administration section of the site does not accept my login name and password that work on the live site so I can't login and make any changes on the local XAMPP version of the site. What am I missing here? - if it's a copy of the same database why doesn't it have the username and password of the Joomla admin?
