Hi Ovidiu,
I have run into some issues with getting my backed up site to run in XAMPP.
I have installed XAMPP onto my PC, and created the database to restore to in MySQL, along with all the necessary users and passwords.
I followed what is shown in the documentation about doing a manual restore (I also tried an automated one but that did not work either) and I have hit a roadblock.
The site does not come up. Whether I type in or local host, it redirects to
Is there something I am supposed to modify somewhere in order to get it to work on my local?

Hi Gary, please check here the multisite transfer documentation https://codex.wordpr….._Multisite , you might need to edit further the .htaccess and wp-config.php files to replace the original url’s.

Feel free to open a support ticket if you would like us to have a look t it. Ovidiu
