    Wordpress Question

    Evening,

    I've just downloaded our school website and have installed the backup files onto my Xampp installation here at home. I've reconnected the database to my machine etc etc and everything runs fine. However when I go to /wp-admin it takes me to the 'real' website.

    Any idea how I stop that? I want to access the wp-admin on my machine but EduGeek.net - Sorry page not found just redirects me to the main site. Argh - annoying.

    Access the database (HeidiSQL is a good tool for looking into MySQL databases) and look in the table wp_options for the URL.

    Nearly there, you need to change the site url to localhost. Follow http://codex.wordpress.org/Changing_The_Site_URL
