Hi there

I have been scratching my head for a day or two and cant get any direct information on how to deploy and existing website locally.

I have been provided the full files and the developer used SS Environment.

I have created the Databse and connected but keep going around in loops. All i see when i access the domain locally arer the files...no deployment

Below are the details of files provided and what i added.

Any help would be greatly appreciated as all i need to do is deploy and edit css etc offline.

regards
Stef

Sounds like you're missing the hidden '.htaccess' file. This file routes the web requests into SilverStripe so make sure that file is included in your deploy or copy it from https://github.com/silverstripe/silverstripe-installer/blob/3.1/.htaccess.
