Wordpress Installation

Postby icrhodes1 » 23. December 2015 11:54

I have been following an article https://premium.wpmudev.org/blog/how-to-install-wordpress-locally-for-pcwindows-with-xampp/ and have hit a bit of a problem as localhost/wp is asking for the sample file message is "Sorry, I need a wp-config-sample.php file to work from. Please re-upload this file to your WordPress installation"

My database is set as wp collation = latini1_swedish_ci privileges give 3 settings for user root 127.0.0.1 & :: & Localhost all are set to global all privileges and grant = yes

I have renamed the wp-config-sample.php to wp-config.php and edited it to read:

/** The name of the database for WordPress */
define('DB_NAME', 'wp');

/** MySQL database username */
define('DB_USER', 'root');

/** MySQL database password */
define('DB_PASSWORD', '');

/** MySQL hostname */
define('DB_HOST', 'localhost');

Any help will be greatly appreciated as I am new to wordpress and web design in general and want to try out things locally without messing up the WordPress site I have created using a stock theme, which is hosted.
