Sorry but I am a monster beginner about this. I tried to follow the instructions from here http://codex.wordpress.org/Installing_WordPress but I failed.
I have my own domain and I want to set up a website using my own computer as a server. I just need an exact list of programs that I need to have installed, and clear steps that I need to do in order to do this.
I downloaded version 3.0.5 and from what I can tell my computer can't open the install.php file.
I'm trying to learn this stuff but it can be hard when most people just assume you know the basics. I don't know the basics. If anybody can help with this thank you in advance.
