I'm not new to designing but very new to server technology and I'm trying to get going with WordPress development. I can't seem to get BitNami WP stack running on my PC. I have already posted to the Bitnami forum which you can see here the full crux of the problem. The error message I received during the failed install is at the bottom of this post as well.
I have received 1 reply but the problem remains unresolved.
I'm pretty close to just hiring a local dev to take care of this for me, since I had issues with a previous WAMP install and I'm obviously out of my league.
Thanks in advance,
