Importing/copying a buddypress mirror locally using MAMP
I’m new to Buddypress and would like first to make changes in my machine to be sure everything looks right and provide a better user experience. I do not like editing “live” my theme, plugins and updates because I always have users online.
So MAMP seemed a good option to run a local server on my MacBook.
What I did was to install MAMP and then do a new wordpress install and add the buddypress plugin to this install which started from zero. This is my lab where I test different themes and plugins.
There are a few problems however:
1) This local MAMP version is different from what I currently have online. So my changes almost never look the same.
2) Starting from zero, I was not able to import my Buddypress groups, forums, user data. The maximum I got was the import of a few blog posts (but not the forum, where all the content is)
I wonder if you can help me.
Is there a good way to import my current buddypress to my local machine? I’d like to have a carbon copy, a mirror of the current website…
