You can follow below steps to setup local magento instance by using existing code base.

  • Download entire code base from server and copy to your local xampp / wamp document root ( C:/xampp/htdocs/xyz )
  • Download the DB dump from remote server and import into your local mysql database ( phpmyadmin )
  • Change the secure & unsecure base url from http://www.example.com into http://localhost/xyz/ in core_config_data table
  • Change the database connection details ( hostname, dbname, username and password ) in app/etc/config.php file
  • Give 777 permission on var/ , pub/ folder
