    What's your localhost address? Go to that in your browser. Follow the instructions.

    hi!

    I have a 2.6.5 WPMU with buddypress and bbpress, and Im trying to test upgrading on a local site first. I have followed all the instruction including the one provided by alamsters link. I now have a working local site at http://localhost.localdomain/ except that i cant get the local subdomain blogs to work. :(
    any step i'm missing?

    ---
    also, tried to transfer a live site locally but the links all go out to the online site. is there an easier way of changing all the links than manually editing the files? if i do change the links, will it work?

    thanks for your help.

    Local subdomains might be a problem. I think you'll need to manually add them into the hosts file to get it working.

    Once I hit submit, I get a Redirect Loop error in the browser.

    Firefox has detected that the server is redirecting the request for this address in a way that will never complete.

    HELP!

    I am trying to install mu wordpress on the local machine running wamp. After entering the database details I get the loop redirect error. I have been looking through the posts and have got nothing that can solve my problem.

    Anybody who could advise?
