Hi all, So been given a task by the boss to download and update some content on the companys currrent website, i suggested downloading the site via ftp then using localhost then updating the content rather than doing it live and causing any issues on the site. Anyway turns out this is the way he wants it done, now everything is downloaded the website back end database. Now the website runs fine on localhost after some setting changes in the php file. Problem im having i have an account to log into the website as an administrator, now for some reason i cannot log in to the website on the localhost although the database and eveything is linked and connected. Something i need to test out in the website live on the localhost when online as an admin basically. So i can't login i have used the mysql command line to work out whats going on, so i'm a user on the database it looks passwords is okay, so my question is why can i not log into the localhost website but i can login to the live website. Although everything is connected correctly to the database?
