Hi - I'm not that bad at webbie stuff but am having a terrible time just copying a live Wordpress website to a local Apache server.
I installed XAMPPLITE and can't get Apache to stay running - seemed to be problems with other programs using Port 80 (yeah - I know about Skype and made sure it was not the problem).
I got into Apache/httpd.conf and changed the four mentions of port 80 into 4903 which seemed safe enough but then I get the error Bad Request (Invalid Hostname) when i enter either http://localhost/
Cheez! - I've never had such a bad time doing something that ought to be trivial!
I need a complete prescription for copying a live Wordpress website complete with mysql database into a local server
. I've used EasyPHP in the past without an issue but not involving databases.
