I recently changed hosting company and thought I had done good by backing up my htdocs folder via FTP. I know now I should have used the export facility on the Wordpress dashboard and everything would be simple.
I have since installed XAMPP and now have a local Wordpress working.
My first attempt was to move the downloaded site htdocs folder to the XAMPP folder but this did not work, next I moved my downloaded Wordpress into the XAMPP folder and I have wordpress and my plugins. I have no pages or posts which is what I need if it's possible.
Can anyone advice which files/folders I need to get into the XAMPP htdocs folder to make my old site work offline or am I going about this the wrong way? Have I fecked it up and lost my site forever?
