So you have copied back the static wordpress files? In which path?
Is iowcaravanhire a physically existing folder or is there a rewrite rule to rewrite it to a different url?

omg, im sorry you have totally lost me lol. im so sorry for being a pain in the a--.
i went into localhost/phpadmin i exported mysql, another folder call iowcaravanhire (which im presuming is where my wordpress stuff is?)
i then installed another newer xampp into a diff folder d/xampp2 and dumped the files in mysql, then imported mysql and iowcaravanhire.
then started xampp and tried to access localhost/caravanhire no go :-(


would it help you to access my laptop to see wht ive done? or am i taking the piss somewhat.

A complete backup of a database driven webapplication like wordpress contains two parts:
  • The static files like .php, .css, .js, images, etc, which are located inside a folder somewhere in your \xampp\htdocs\
  • The database structure and data
Both needs to be backuped and restored to rebuild a working webapplication.

A HTTP error 404 means that Apache can't find a ressource (very common a file or folder) where Apache expected to find it.
So beside your database dump did you also backuped and restored your static files to the correct folder?
