I want to fix a website that was done by another person but I do not want to break the live version of it. So I downloaded the whole website completely and the live database, installed everything on a local web-server and fixed "core_config_data" table (
web/unsecure/base_url) and "local.xml" file.
The main page is just wrong, it's all scuffed. I inspected the code and it seems to show some other template in general. Some menus are wrong and some elements do not even exist in it. But I copied the whole website, how is it possible that I receive incorrect output by pretty much copypasting the code?
I do not know how to debug this, Magento seems huge, I would love to hear suggestions and, possibly, steps for debug process. Thank you.
