i have a problem with the re-setup magento. i download back-up site on Cpanel. and export DB. i want setup to localhost. But it just redirects to the live site. How it works on localhost. I've edited the content in /app/etc/local.xml and romove var/cache Thanks all!
SELECT * FROM `core_config_data` WHERE `path` LIKE '%base_url%'
to find values and change column value to http://localhost/
If you use windows edit C:\Windows\System32\drivers\etc Host file and add your domain name redirected to localhost.
In linux use vim /etc/hosts
Now all calls from your computer to yourdomain.com would be resolved back to your computer.
