I hope someone can help me, I have a shared hosting reseller account. With 1 click software installers ect on the Centos platform. And I have a local Centos VPS via windows 7 for development and testing. I was thinking that as I have 1 click software installers ect on the remote with Cpanel ect. What is the best way to move a Drupal site from remote to local dev server?

I installed Drupal 6.26 on remote with Cpanel ect, 1 click software installers. Then downloaded remote site and database for /home/example/public_html using ftp to local dev server Z:\example\public_html

really want to make the process of developing the remote site locally. As easy and painless as possible,
I have webmin installed and phpmyadmin locally and want the best solution. I have kept the local database name and username password ect the same as remote site.

local dev server = Z:\example\public_html Remote site = /home/example/public_html

I have used name based virtual host urls for testing locally, and ftp for file transfer will start using ssh.

local dev url = example
remote url =

Operating system CentOS Linux 5.7 PHP 5.4.0 (cli) , mysql Ver 14.14 Distrib 5.5.10, for Linux (x86_64), webmin , Git, ect are installed on local development vps. mod_rewrite is enabled on local.

keep running into major problems, any advice would help thanks. Best solution please a tutorial anything....
