Xampp redirects Localhost url to my live url website.

Hi guys,

Maybe this is some what of a beginner's question. I am running Prestashop on a server but needed to get it in a test environment. So i exported my database and imported it in xampp. Same for the files i copied it from my server and placed it on the localhost/test/ But when i go to localhost/test/ it redirects to my online website url why is this?

Thank you for helping me out!

Because of your Prestashop configuration. very common in the installation dialogue you have entered the url and for your local copy you need to change that information

I needed to change the DB information in phpmyadmin, now it works. But it still redirects when i click one of the menu buttons on the website.. It redirects from Localhost/test/ to localhost/xampp/ any idea?

No.
By default there is a redirect from http://localhost/ to http://localhost/xampp/ (done by the code in the \xampp\htdocs\index.php file), but not from http://localhost/test/
