I have inherited a Drupal 6 site to maintain.
I am new to Drupal so there is an element of learning as I go.
I have encountered a strange issue after attempting to set up a test site on my local machine.
All my links on my local site continue to point to the live server. So any menus, login buttons etc all point towards live site.
Steps I have taken:
checked settings.php to ensure that $base_url is set to "http://localhost:456"
checked settings.php to ensure that MySQL settings are correct
Taken an SQL dump of the entire local database and searched for any references to live site URL
deleted all the local cache data from database
Checked various blocks to ensure that there was no hard coding of links
Disabled language support as that does use separate URLS for each language
I am at a total loss as to where to go from here. I can navigate through the site locally by replacing the url in the address bar to point to the local site, and I have even managed to change the local theme so I can see which version of teh site Im on. The fact that I could do this means that the database is set up correctly.
Totally stumped as to where to go from here. Any takers??
