If you want to make an offline installation to your computer, you should have all databases from your site. Probably easier to make new (offline) site onto your computer using LAMP or XAMPP. :wink:

so if i understand you right, you're saying that i need to install either of them? it's mandatory
do i need anything but the updraft plus full backup? or do i need the database separately?

when i've tried to install LAMP i couldn't succeed.
