Error when copying site from remote server to local

Hello all,

I am up against a problem I haven’t seen before. I have copied a Concrete 9 site I developed from the web server to my local Sites folder, and when I try to visit the local version, I get the following error:

Attempt to assign property “cPathFetchIsCanonical” on null

One thing that I suspect may be causing the issue is that the remote site files do not live at the root ‘www’ level… they are in a directory at the root (ie: /home/accountname/sitename/).

I have no idea how to fix this, and I need to have a local version of the site, as I need to add some new features. Any help would be greatly appreciated.


Are you using xamp or or something link that?

I am on a Mac, using MAMP Pro.

There is a setting that switches the case of the dB make sure you database hasn’t turned all lowercase

Thanks for the tip, TMD. I went to try another import first, and decided to export the remote DB without compression. There must have been a corruption in the first export, as the uncompressed DB worked without a hitch.

I appreciate the time, and have a great weekend.

Just make sure the local camp doesn’t lowercase your dB tables
