Please advice me on how to move Expression engine site from Live Server to Localhost

1 Answer 1


It is pretty straight forward to move an EE site.

The instructions from EllisLabs are pretty comprehensive - EE server migration instructions.

  • I followed EE server migration instructions. Apr 7, 2017 at 16:49
  • Moved EE 2.5.5 site to localhost and RESULT :An Error Was Encountered Site Error: Unable to Load Site Preferenes; No Preferences Found Apr 7, 2017 at 17:45
  • That sounds very much like a problem hooking up your local site to the MySQL database - I'd check that you've got the database.php settings correct on the migrated file. Apr 7, 2017 at 22:13
