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 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.
