Locally running wordpress using remote database

When you download all your files to your WWW folder, change the wp-config.php file.

If you run it local then use local in the define part.
This define part means where are your files stored, not the database. you ill then need to run search and replace on your database to change any url links. This can run into around 800 even if you use relative links.

I have a port number of 3700, you may have to use variations of this.
