Make sure the local site has an updated copy of the unl templatedependents

** Troubleshooting
******
After navigating to the elgg dir in your browser and filling in the correct database info - 
if you get the error that elgg can't connect to your database do this:
1. find your php.ini file, probably located at /etc/php.ini.default and rename it to php.ini
2. edit the mysql.default_socket line to include the path to your mysql.sock file, e.g.
   mysql.default_socket = /private/tmp/mysql.sock

safe_dump.sql can be imported without the need for modification

when importing full_dump.sql, you must modify certain rows in the tables elggdatalists and elggsites_entity so
