View Full Version : wordpress problem: exporting site and installing on new address

02-29-2012, 03:58 PM

I try to export a wordpress site I have and install it on my pc at localhost/newsite (localhost can be another domain in the future).
After I fixed all, the site’s homepage loads, but when I click a page, i get to the page’s url back it displays localhost main panel (all the folders etc…)
I use wamp.
WP ver 3.3.1

What I did:
1. Search replaced all domain.com to localhost/newsite
2. On wp-config.php I changed the DB definitions from the domain.com server to the localhost DB.
3. Then went to localhost’s phpmyadmin and imported the DB.

What am I missing here?
Why do the pages display the localhost admin panel instead of the page content (and show the page’s url)?

Can anyone help here?

Have you done anything with the .htaccess file?

ok,found the problem.
I think it might be a WP bug.
it turns out i did everything correctly.
but after installation, i had to go the the permalinks settings, and just click save (dont change anything, just click save and everything worked fine).
