Updating the site does not work

I have updated a local site in Local by downloading the complete web space of the site from the hoster. Then I deleted the old, no longer current site in the corresponding public folder - wp-config.php was previously saved for access - and copied the new data into it completely.

The site starts. But it doesn’t show the site from now, beginning of October, but an old state from July this year.

Have I not taken something into account? Do I have to empty a cache of the site beforehand? Or how do I get the current site locally on my computer?

System Details

  • Local Version:
    Version 6.4.2+6012

  • Operating System (OS) and OS version:
    Mac OS 14.0

Problem solved! I have made a mistake. I forgot to update the database. I downloaded the database from the hoster, deleted the existing database entries and imported the contents of the new database. Now everything works as desired.
