Thumbs up vBulletin 5 - problems installing local environment

I have access to the source code of a vbulletin 5 website, as well as it's database.
The site is configured to work on HTTPS, so when trying to install it locally without a HTTPS, it seems as if everything it's hard-coded to work on https.
I changed the settings from directly from the database and updated the datastore options entry, and that seemed to help remove the need of using HTTPS.
My problem right know, is that the system
is asking me for a QUICK START, and the entire layout seems broken. I can't do anything in the adminpanel.

Is there any proper protocol/process to install a vbulletin 5 website on your local environment?
Thank you!

Need details of what you're running it on...

If you've no layout, it's normally a lack of mod_rewrite or equivalent.

On Apache, you need to rename htaccess.txt to .htaccess.
