All config files were edited and the backup was restored on my database. Please describe your problem. cookies do not work
I don't know why, but I was getting redirected to my live site using Xampp and discovered it was my site URL listed in the database. Once I changed that to localhost I was able to login without being redirected. Don't know why. I did everything the KB article talked about. Set the forum to localhost, etc before downloading a copy.
if you have force url set to yes in the admin panel under server settings it will direct you to that url every time.
once you set that, then it is in the database so even if you copy everything down to your localhost, it will still be set to the live board.
you should not normally have to set that to yes and certainly not on a localhost.
I'm baaaaaccckkkk. still doing work on donation basis. PM your needs.
