How to setup vanilla on localhost using live site backup(FTP and db back)

edited August 2014 in Vanilla 2.0 - 2.8


Is any method to have modify live site backup work on localhost. I try as follows

  1. Download FTP and DB backup
  2. Change config.php details
    $Configuration['Database']['User'] = 'root'; $Configuration['Database']['Password'] = '';

But when i visit localhost/testsite it will be redirect to the live site ;)

where vanilla set server path :D

(Creating fresh vanilla install and copy live site plugins,locales,themes will not help me..because change lot of inside the applications applications folder :( )
,also live site has lot of dummy data,so testing will be more easy if use live site back up db)

any Help
