Restoring a website locally/offline


I have a backed up (jpa file) and i wish to restore it on my own computer. I am running a windows 7 operating system and i want to be able to see my webpages which i have created previously using a cloud hosting site which is now stored on this jpa file - so i want to see them on my own computer's web browser and be able to develop it offline. Is there software out there that can help me do this......

First you need to install web server on your computer - you can use Xaamp, it is easy to install.

Then use Akeeba Kickstart to extract your jpa archive - https://www.akeebabackup.com/products/akeeba-kickstart.html

What do i do or what does it mean when it gives me this kind of message. #please look below.

Server Error in Application "DEFAULT WEB SITE"
Internet Information Services 7.5
Error Summary
HTTP Error 404.4 - Not Found
The resource you are looking for does not have a handler associated with it.
Detailed Error Information
Module      IIS Web Core
Notification      MapRequestHandler
Handler      Not yet determined
Error Code      0x80070002
Requested URL      http://localhost:80/phpmyadmin/
Physical Path      C:\inetpub\wwwroot\phpmyadmin\
Logon Method      Anonymous
Logon User      Anonymous
Most likely causes:
The file extension for the requested URL does not have a handler configured to process the request on the Web server.
Requested URL      http://localhost:80/phpmyadmin/

The file extension for the requested URL does not have a handler configured to process the request

Look at the error,...and the URL.   The URL has no "file" on the end,..and hence no file extension.  So IIS is probably "confused" trying to associate the file extension (which doesn't exist) to an action to perform, which generally would be to either execute it (php, asp, aspx, jsp) or to stream it to the browser (htm, html).

In IIS you could try to "turn on" the Default Documents and give it a list of potential default documents to look for (ex.  default.htm, index.htm, default,html, index.html, defaut.asp,....you should get the point from there)

JPA files

These are basically an archive file.  You cannot run the file as it is,...you need to unpack the files to restore all the files in it along with the folder structure.  You have to extract it into the "wwwroot" folder for IIS to find it properly,...OR,...extract into it's own root folder somewhere and either create a "new site" in IIS and point it to that folder or change the Home Folder location of the Default Website.  Since you are on a simple Desktop OS and not a Server OS the later may be your only option.

1. Find the IIS control panel and/or services window and stop IIS service.
2. uninstall/delete xampp and reinstall it

You might have missed it but what probably happened is that IIS was running when you installed xampp, so xampp couldn't grab port 80. The easiest way to fix this is to uninstall and reinstall with IIS off.
