I have a backup on my desktop of our Joomla website in a JPA file created through Akeeba backup. I want to view it locally on my computer with XAMPP. After installing XAMPP what are the steps I must take to restore my JPA file into XAMPP? I am running Joomla Version 1.5.23. Thanks.

put the jpa file with the kickstart file (download from the akeeba site) to the htdocs folder of xampp and open http://localhost/the folder that you have put the files

then follow the steps

(Firstly you have to create a database and  a user )

Panagiotiss, can you clarify the path of the local host folder? Where would be the localhost folder on my local machine?
