    Hi all,

    Ive downloaded the zip file, expanded it into its own folder, double clicked the install.php file, clicked on the open option when the next window appears, IE appears briefly for only about a second.

    I have even tried opening the wp-config-sample.php file but the same thing happens with IE

    What am i doing wrong?

    Help

    Kind regards Mark

    Did you follow the instructions here https://codex.wordpress.org/Installing_WordPress

    You need to upload it to your server or use software such as XAMPP or Wamp to run locally :)

    I didnt read the instructions that you have supplied before i tried installing it. I will read through the instructions, install either of the software you have suggested and come back to you if needed.

    Thank you for your advice and help so far.

    Mark
