I just installed XAMPP and then Exported/Imported my Database and my Config file.. and after some effort I believe I have them right.
The problem is that if I go to 127.0.0.1/wordpress I can see my blog... without any theme however, just text
If I go to localhost/wordpress I get an "Ooops Google Chrome can't find localhost"
Additionally, when I go thru the 127.0.0.1/wordpress route.. All I can get is the blog front page.. but can't click to anything (get the Ooops Chrome page) nor can I login using either wp-admin or wp-login.php.
I feel I am so close to having my blog running on my PC (so I can do some major overhauls) yet so far ... I'm betting it's a simple setting somewhere... but of course the simplest things are the hardest to find.
Any help would be muchly appreciated!
