I'm doing some work on a client's wordpress so to not touch the live I imported what I thought I needed from their FTP into my xampp to reproduce their environment. Their website is hosted on bluehost, for reference.
I Exported/imported their phpmyadmin database, as well as copying over the parent theme and the child theme from FTP. I copied over the wp-config.php for database credentials. It seems like i'd have covered all the bases but it's giving me that error still. What else could I be missing to get this working?
DB_HOST is also already set to localhost
Googling this error didn't yield much for my scenario
Are there more things I should import over from their FTP to emulate 1:1 their environment?
