Loaded xampp and wordpress; getting 404 and nothing else

Postby kwangpo » 19. December 2014 00:03

So I loaded my WP site, and mysql db to my pc (Windows 8.1 64 bit), along with xampp. Everything runs fine, but when I got to 127.0.0.1/mysite I see my site with a 404 error. Everything links to the actual live site. Likewise if I go to 127.0.0.1/mysite/wp-admin it leads to the live site.

What step did I miss on my install and what steps do I need to take to correct this bad install?

Cheers

What do you mean with "loaded"?? What did you actually do (please describe exactly)?

I went to 127.0.0.1/my_site/

However, I found the first issue. When I had replaced all the urls with the local host site it didn't take. As a result my uploaded DB was pointing to the wrong site. Now I just need to change all my hyperlinks. Ugh
