using subfolder

Anyone who have imported to Local a site with wp files in a subfolder and index file a level up? It look like I must have all files in the same folder…

Hey Johannesodegard,

The best way would be to turn it into a .zip and let Local do the work for you. The basic layout of the zip looks something like this:

  • database.sql (anything ending in .sql in the root of the .zip will be recognized)
  • /wp-content

All other files are optional but will still be imported.

If you’re zipping it on a Mac you’ll want to make sure you select the files individually rather than selecting a single folder to zip.

Once you have the zip created you can drag and drop it onto Local (1.4.1 or newer) to import it.

if you need any more info please let me know.
