(To clarify, as per the URL, I installed XamppLite)
I'm starting my first website (just a wordpress blog) and I'm trying to make myself my own theme. I am following these instructions: http://geeksaresexy.blogspot.com/2006/0 ... under.html
I get stuck on #3 and #4 - I run Apache - it seems to work properly. But then I run the Mysql service and it just never stops "running" and nothing ever happens.
Then when I try to open http://localhost/ - nothing happens either (I get a Page Cannot Be Displayed error)
I've tried disabling zone alarm (restarting and disabling, etc)
I've trying doing the regedit that is on these forums here somewhere
I need everything to be explained in lamens please.
And also - is there an easier way to make a theme than going through all this?
EDIT: Almost forgot, I sometimes close it and reopen the program - and it says "***Directory Mismatch***".
