I'm new to all this XAMPP stuff but managed to get through all installation of wordpress on it without issue, or so I thought. Once I installed and logged in, I tried to continue to the dashboard and received the following error message:
"Warning: require_once(ABSPATHwp-admin/includes/bookmark.php) [function.require-once]: failed to open stream: No such file or directory in C:\Program Files\xampp\htdocs\wordpress\wp-admin\admin.php on line 10
Fatal error: require_once() [function.require]: Failed opening required 'ABSPATHwp-admin/includes/bookmark.php' (include_path='.;C:\Program Files\xampp\php\PEAR') in C:\Program Files\xampp\htdocs\wordpress\wp-admin\admin.php on line 10"
I can't understand what this means as all the files appear to be in the right place, but I'm guessing I've done something wrong along the way.
Any help or suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
