Just to say it, I am a newbie.
I have installed xampp in order to install wordpress locally, and it seems to work properly, but when I try it with wordpress, I got problems. I have done the orders under which I found another place, but get as a result that wp-config.php cannot be found. Any suggestions`?
Download and unzip WordPress.
Open the file wp-config-sample.php
These are the exact details you need for Xampp to work
define('DB_NAME', 'wordpress'); // The name of the database
define('DB_USER', 'root'); // Your MySQL username
define('DB_PASSWORD', ''); // ...and password
define('DB_HOST', 'localhost'); // 99% chance you won't need to change this value
Copy those details into your wp-config file, and save it as wp-config.php
Now you need to copy the files to the right place.
Click the Start button, followed by My Computer > Main drive > Xampplite > htdocs
Copy the whole WordPress folder into this directory.
In your browser, go to http://localhost/wordpress/wp-admin/install.php
and everything from there should run smoothly !
