Back story is: Following the excellent Mr. Powers' suggestion (http://forums.adobe.com/thread/439283), I recovered my 'lost' sites by importing them into the HKEY registry of my new machine. All good and fine, suddenly my new PC with its new DWCS5.5 is populated with all my old sites! (I've had to re-enter remote usernames and PW's, but, no problem.)
Problem is, that now, whilst testing on my local server, the links are broken (404) -- whereas before, on the old local testing server, all was fine.
New server set-up just as old one-- example C:\xampp\htdocs\thesite .
Hover over a link & address bar says "localhost/filename.php" where it should (and did on old machine) read "localhost/sitename/filename.php". I can't seem to figure out how to test locally (just when I thought I'd begun to advance as a web developer! lol)
To my mind this should be a simple matter of a well formed site definition, but, I'm flummoxed.
Any help would be much appreciated.
Let's see how your Local Testing Server Folder is configured. Site > Manage Sites > Edit...

I'm using ".htaccess" to set the default file inside "/somefolder/" so that a link to "/somefolder/" becomes the same as "/somefolder/defaultfile.php"
All files are present and acounted for.
Seems to me, testing site is well configured (as in my first screen-shot). So as I hover over "sculpture" the address window should read "localhost/wollmanStudios/" and the link should convey user to the desired location. Instead, user goes to "localhost/sculpture", obviously the wrong address. See screen-shot below:
Thanks for your help :-) , I'll continue plugging away at the site management configuration.
Okay. Was a simple error of using the Deployment (links look like "/link/") include rather that the Local Testing (links look like "../link/") include file. I knew I was overlooking something silly.
