    Hi there I copy all my stuff from my ftp to my local machine (mamp pro)

    I export the MysQL database and replace the old URL to the new one

    ( to http://bernd.local:8888/wordpress/joos/ )


    UPDATE wp_options SET option_value =

    replace(option_value, ‘’, ‘http://bernd.local:8888/wordpress/joos/’);

    UPDATE wp_posts SET post_content =

    replace(post_content, ‘’, ‘http://bernd.local:8888/wordpress/joos/’);

    UPDATE wp_posts SET guid =

    replace(guid, ‘’, ‘http://bernd.local:8888/wordpress/joos/’);

    And I change the config.php

    But now when I type the new URL http://bernd.local:8888/wordpress/joos/ – the browser jump to http://bernd.local/wordpress/joos/ and this didnt work, cause the port is missing.

    How can i fix this?

    Big THX, Bernd


    Hey Bernd,

    Unfortunately we aren’t really able to support getting your wordpress installation set up on either live servers or local servers. Your best bet is to check with the Mamp forums or the WordPress forums.




    Hi Devin,

    of course, I understand you, but I think this isn’t a wordpress or Mamp problem, cause I do this several times – on the same way. I think it is the theme, or the theme has problems with the :8888 Port. I try ;-)


    my mistake … sorry


    Hi Rammler,

    instead of working manually, searchreplacedb2 helped me to move my installation a couple of times. Check it out on:

    Apart of that, the browser jumping to your original URL sounds a little bit like a cache issue. Try to delete all cache files from any caching plugin you use.


    Hi shutterlag,

    Thanks for helping out. :)
