    Hi. when i tried to put my database details and using easy php 1-8, will paste the info below. can you help me out. here it is the error message:

    There doesn't seem to be a wp-config.php file. I need this before we can get started. Need more help?
    We got it.
    You can
    create a wp-config.php file through a web interface,
    but this doesn't work for all server setups. The safest way is to manually create the file.
    and using Easy Php 1-8, and put the files in the c:\ProgramFiles\EasyPHP1-8\www. folder.
    now put the and renamed the wpconfig-samples.php to wpconfig.php and put localhost as the user name and root as the password.
    now can you help me out.
    will also paste the contents of the file below.

    <?php
    // ** MySQL settings ** //
    define('DB_NAME', 'wordpress'); // The name of the database
    define('DB_USER', 'localhost'); // Your MySQL username
    define('DB_PASSWORD', 'root'); // ...and password
    define('DB_HOST', 'localhost'); // 99% chance you won't need to change this value

    // You can have multiple installations in one database if you give each a unique prefix
    $table_prefix = 'wp_'; // Only numbers, letters, and underscores please!

    // Change this to localize WordPress. A corresponding MO file for the
    // chosen language must be installed to wp-includes/languages.
    // For example, install de.mo to wp-includes/languages and set WPLANG to 'de'
    // to enable German language support.
    define ('WPLANG', '');

    /* That's all, stop editing! Happy blogging. */

    define('ABSPATH', dirname(__FILE__).'/');
    require_once(ABSPATH.'wp-settings.php');
    ?>
    so can you help me out, and get pass this problem on the first screen?
    cheers Marvin.

    I have no experience with the program you are using, but could I interest you in Xampp? It's very easy to use and there is lots of advice around here for it too:
