local install of wp site brought down from host - home page is ok but other pages redirect to wamp config page.

I got all local files from host to www dir under local wamp.

I got database from host and loaded to new local db and used this tool at


to adjust

now the home page works great and can login to admin page but when click on reservations page and others of site then site just goes to

the wamp server config page even though the url shows correctly as

my htaccess file is this
# BEGIN WordPress
<IfModule mod_rewrite.c>
RewriteEngine On
RewriteBase /
RewriteRule ^index\.php$ - [L]
RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-f
RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-d
RewriteRule . /index.php [L]

# END WordPress

and rewrite-module is checked in the php-apache-apache modules setting.


now when I uncheck the rewrite-module is checked in the php-apache-apache modules setting.

or I
clear out the whole htaccess file

then the pages just goto

Not Found
The requested URL /site_on_local/reservations/ was not found on this server.


Please help as I am unsure now about my process to move local site up and down and be able to make it work and without this I am lost...

Thanks so much.

Have you edited your wp-config.php file? That is where you tell WordPress where to look for the database and the username/password combination used to access it. Sorry, I am not familiar with the tools you used to move the site, but anytime you move a WP site you need to be sure that the config is updated to the new information.
