Working with WordPress
in notepad (hard to read the code that way)
Error Reads: Parse error: parse error in C:\xampp\htdocs\wordpress\wp-config.php on line 77
I look at it in Dreamweaver (which I know sometimes adds extra code) and in notepad (hard to read the code that way) and couldn't find why it was giving me the exception. Line "77" is blank. When the "blank line" is removed the error reads a "parse error" for the next line up.
Did you run http://localhost and all the demos on the XAMPP Welcome Page to test your installation?DarkenedHart wrote:The full version /seemed/ to install fine. There was one error in regards to Vista warning me about allowing Apache access (which was allowed).
Never use the super user root as a user for a database or you will open a very serious security hole and if these so called "tutorials" advise you otherwise then they are not credible and should be ignored. Using root in a database as a username is a big NO! NO!DarkenedHart wrote:...It was very much like setting it up on my site's own host and should have worked. *~ Database name, root, localhost, no password (blank)
DW may be not using the correct line endings so as a test use Notepad to make you edits and save the file in the usual way.DarkenedHart wrote:But when I open the site link ( http://localhost/wordpress/wp-admin/install.php ) it throws the above error! So yes I am confused
Turn off word wrap in note pad to make it easier to read and quicker to edit than DW.DarkenedHart wrote:...and in notepad (hard to read the code that way)
