    “Re-initializing” a wordpress website on localhost, by BatsBee

    Hi, I have been running a WP website on my computer (using XAMPP) and just had a few problems, so I have had to re-install XAMPP and then I copied over the MySql files and WordPress files from the earlier installation.
    Now, when I go to open the site in a browser, which is just a localhost, WP wants to do a new install and falls over when it finds many of the files already in existence (“wordpress database error”)! It’s an unusual circumstance, but is there any way for me to save my existing site and all the work that I have put into it? cheers, Bruce
