I recently installed WAMP server with the proper PHP and MYSGL addons since they are required to run WordPress. I followed guides from others and seem to be stuck. I've turned everything on with WAMP (PHP, MYSQL) and can't seem to access the phpMyAdmin, although it may not be an issue with running WordPress.
I extracted WordPress into the c:/wamp/www folder and can access it. However, when prompted to input the configuration information, it says it's unable to select the database. I used 'www' and 'wordpress' but get the same error. Also, as for the username, password and database host, the username is 'root,' password is empty and the database host is on default, 'localhost.'
I did install MYSQL and it did ask to create login information which I did and used the inputs on the WordPress configuration and still no luck. However, after realizing I can download the MYSQL addon for WAMP, I removed the MYSQL software.
I mainly followed this guideline:
If you can give me a step by step set up of WAMP and installing WordPress, I would appreciate it.
