Best installing again to the htdocs folder after altering the wp-config file as you did not say if you set any paths etc. which may give issues if you move the installation.Ubiquity wrote:So far I have downloaded and unzipped the Wordpress files and altered the wp-config.php but stopped short of installing Wordpress.
From what I read above I now need to move the wordpress directory into C:\xampp\htdocs\ as a sub-directory before initiating the installation - is this correct?
Correct.Ubiquity wrote:I currently have a moodle subdirectory in htdocs connected to its own database which appears to be working correctly and I wish to ensure that moodle and wordpress will be independent.
Am I correct in my assumption or should I create a further sub-directory (say wpress) in the tree to effect proper separation?
