/wp-admin not accessible after migrating to local host (no plugin issue)


I migrated my local WordPress site to my WPEngine account and it’s been working without any problem!

After adding some content, I decided to export the database from the live version and import it to my local version so that they are synced. I adjusted the two siteurl and home fields in the database and the home page (https://localhost:8888) comes up well but the /wp-admin page is forced to https and responds with ERR_SSL_PROTOCOL_ERROR error.

All the other pages of the website cannot be loaded and return this error: Not Found The requested URL /news was not found on this server.

It seems like a "permalinks" reset problem for inner pages!

All these problems would go away if I switch the database back to the one I was using for local version so I’m pretty sure it’s a database issue!

Thanks
