Local installation from live instance

I am trying to create a local installation of Indico using dbdump and archive folder. I have managed to get past all the steps, but when I go to the localhost address on my system, it says > "Invalid URL

This Indico instance can only be accessed via https://abc.abc.org."

I have changed the BASE_URL to http://127.0.0.1:8000. However, the problem persists. I am not a server guy. What might be wrong here.

You need to make sure the requested address Indico sees matches the one in BASE_URL. In case you use the dev server locally, note that BASE_URL in the config file is ignored; the indico run command builds it based on the host/port unless overridden by a command line argument.

Aha. I was running a copy of production version locally. That might be the issue. I’ll test this using a dev version.
