Any help gratefully received. I can follow instructions but I don't understand the technical matters too well.
LOADING WORDPRESS TO XAMPP
I Followed instructions to the letter at http://www.tamba2.org.uk/wordpress/xampp/ and going to http://localhost/wordpress/wp-admin/install.php in Firefox I got the following message:
define('DB_NAME', 'wordpress'); // The name of the database
define('DB_USER', 'root'); // Your MySQL username
define('DB_PASSWORD', ''); // ...and password
define('DB_HOST', 'localhost'); // 99% chance you won't need to change this value
Warning: require_once(ABSPATHwp-admin/includes/admin.php) [function.require-once]: failed to open stream: No such file or directory in C:\xampplite\htdocs\wordpress\wp-admin\includes\upgrade.php on line 5
Fatal error: require_once() [function.require]: Failed opening required 'ABSPATHwp-admin/includes/admin.php' (include_path='.;C:\xampplite\php\pear\') in C:\xampplite\htdocs\wordpress\wp-admin\includes\upgrade.php on line 5
I clicked on the above function links and got OBJECT NOT FOUND error 404
It looks to me like path='.;C:\xampplite\php\pear\' needs to be included on line 5 in 'ABSPATHwp-admin/includes/admin.php' of ….upgrade.php
Or 'ABSPATHwp-admin/includes/admin.php' path='.;C:\xampplite\php\pear\' is the path that needs to be included at line five.
I have looked and I can't figure out where it should be inserted or what exactly should be inserted. I don’t want to go playing around in the file and forget what I've done and where I've done it. I don't want to ruin what is already good. Can anyone help?
Thank you. Mark
