I recently imported a site into Local, and was able to get the site up-and-running locally (as far as I can tell, anyway). However, I am unable to log into the site, either by using the Admin button in the Local interface, or by manually navigating to mysite.local/wp-admin. Either of these actions returns our site’s default 404 page.
As I imported, I ran into several issues, which I solved to the best of my understanding. First, the database did not import at all (perhaps because we use non-standard table names?), so I had to import it through the Adminer interface. This meant that I also had to manually update the urls in the tables, and also update wp-config to point to the table prefix. So, I’m not sure if the inability to login to the admin area is related to the way I imported, but I mention it in case it is relevant.
Otherwise, the site is running just fine locally, no broken links, etc.
Any help you can provide a Wordpress newbie is much appreciated!
