New Xampp & Wordpress install problem

Postby Jaxom » 20. February 2015 06:12

I just installed Xampp and Wordpress on my Windows 8.1 laptop. Not sure where the issue is. If I type in http://mywebsite.com/wordpress I get sent to my ip's search page hosted by Yahoo. If I type in http://localhost:3306/wp-admin or http://mywebsite.com/wp-admin I get this type of error,

J 5.6.21ny47U&\{ÿ÷€zqHSHP9h%yW%mysql_native_password!ÿ„#08S01Got packets out of order

Feel stupid, spent a week trying to figure out why I couldn't get into Wordpress. Different error, that turned out to being the wrong user name being used in the wp-config.php file. I'm posting this here, because I the install was so seamless. I downloaded both Xampp and Wordpress 4.1 about 3 weeks ago from the Bitnami website.

Really confused now as to where the error, or what I did wrong is at. I've tried googling this error. Seems that the "packets out of order" error is more common to Mamp and some type of Apple product.

Any Information about starting Apache and MySQL?

I get everything is working fine when I open Xampp's control panel. Apache, MySql, all running. I'll reread the faq, I believe there's mention of some error logs I can post and such. Will do ANYTHING to get started on actually building my website then messing around just getting at it!

All of them wrong....

1) http://mywebsite.com/wordpress ---> what is "mywebseite.com", you are working on localhost
2) http://localhost:3306/wp-admin ---> totally wrong, Port 3306 yields to MySQL instead of Apache
3) http://mywebsite.com/wp-admin ----> again wrong domain name, also wrong folder

Did you try http://localhost/worpress (i cant find it in your suggestions)?

If this still does not work, please answer these two questions:

a) where did you install Xampp? Should be in c:/xampp
b) where did put the wordpress folder? It should be c:/xampp/htdocs/wordpress
