HOWTO: Set up a Local Mirror of Your Wordpress Blog on MacOS X
Here's what I did to set up a local mirror of my Wordpress blog on MacOS X. Please let me know if it's useful, and I will try to update this from time to time.
Firstly, why do this? Well I can think of a few reasons:
- keeping an up-to-date and working backup
- using it for testing changes to the blog before you inflict them on the world. Like formatting, software updates, or anything really.
- It's fun (except for the MySQL setup, which we'll get to)
Update: I have moved this HOWTO to a new page. Please update your bookmarks.
