Hi so I need to make some drastic changes to my live site and it looks like I'll have to take it local to make these changes using XAMPP or WAMP.
So far I have taken all of the files from my server and got
myself a database backup via the Magento admin.
I have now put all the files into a folder within my htdocs and i'm not sure what I do from here?
I am having trouble understanding the database, because I obviously need to add it to XAMPP to get all of my store running how it should however I have no idea how I assign the folder that contains my store the database.
Also what other steps are there?
I have taken a look around Google and I cant seem to find a way of taking a live site and making it local.
Could someone possibly describe the steps of doing this using XAMPP or WAMP?
