Local dev environment Win10/XAMPP
I have a number of local websites in my htdocs folder (eg. MyTestSite) that I access by visiting
localhost/MyTestSite these work fine.
So today I restored a (Joomla 2.5.6) site from a live environment to my local pc (htdocs/3i). I visited
localhost/3i expecting to see my new website, but instead the address bar immediately changed to
http://www.localhost/xampp/ which took me to my Welcome to XAMPP for Windows! page.
Now if I type
www.localhost/3i I can see my homepage, but none of the other links work, they take me straight back to
I assumed this had something to do with my .htaccess file (which is below) however I can't see anything that may be causing this, although I'm no htaccess expert!
