I'm trying to take a live / currently well functioning production site and create a local version. I downloaded all the files and the database and the site itself now works on my local device but whenever I try to access any of the admin pages to edit the site, I get a 404 page from Craft.
I replaced my entire craft/app folder to help ensure no corrupt file issues and that didn't fix the problem. I also completely deleted the contents of my craft/storage/runtime folder to account for the potential download of temp files that could be confusing the local site and that didn't fix it either.
The local site is running in dev mode and there is no error that shows on any of the admin pages, just a 404.
Any idea what's going on here and possible fixes?
