Since I had 2 times of experience which Local by Flywheel app crashed in Windows 10 and could not be reinstalled and ended up no solution. So even though I can use Local by Flywheel now in the same computer(and I don’t know why), but I am kind of under pressure if Local by Flywheel app crashes again and my devt sites for customers’ projects will be stuck. So…, I am kind of forced to engaged the R&D of migrating websites in Local by Flywheel into Xammp local as a precaution, I would like to make sure that I can keep my business projects going even if Local by Flywheel crashes and can not be reinstalled again, so, I just tried to move a website into Xampp.
The result is half success, because I can access the migrated website’s frontend/homepage and backend, I can edit pages at backend, but I can not access any other front-end pages except homepage, all other pagesl redirect to Xampp dashboard UL. So, I hope someone can share some guidance for the solution. Thanks.
Below is the rough description of the process that how I did that:
Export mysql zip file from Flywheel PhpMyAdmin
Import the mysql zip into newly created database in Xampp
Copied the site files from Local by Flywheel folder into Xampp folder
Change the siteurl and home URL in new mysql database “mysampledbprefix_option”
Change the database name and password in wp-config.php(username is root in both platform)
