Question by Joshua: How do I copy my WordPress blog onto my computer so I can locally edit and try out plugins before publishing?
My website is on a remote server, I have copied all the files from their remote host server. How do I now configure MAMP to see this as a local copy of wordpress so I can edit it and try out different themes.
Please help. I am pulling my hair out!

If you have download your database (NOTE:Be careful working with database, unless you know what you are doing), then you open this database file, and find, your real online blog’s URL.
Then replace that URL with your localhost blog address.
Save it and apply to the local host database.
