[resolved] Webmatrix WP won't start (3 posts)

    I have installed WordPress in the following manner:
    From site WebPI followed the defaults to get WordPress installed.
    On the way I had trouble with installing .net Framework4 and this was fixed without any problems.

    WordPress worked well until just recently. I had a memory problem caused by some updater running rogue. Again that was fixed by removing some registry files.

    The outcome is that wordpress will not run. I get as far as loading Webmatrix, selecting the site, selecting run and IE returns the usual message when it cannot find a site.
    Webmatrix reports that the hyperlink is broken

    I have run the report and here is a copy of the file:

    <?php
    /**
     * Front to the WordPress application. This file doesn't do anything, but loads
     * wp-blog-header.php which does and tells WordPress to load the theme.
     *
     * @package WordPress
     */
    
    /**
     * Tells WordPress to load the WordPress theme and output it.
     *
     * @var bool
     */
    define('WP_USE_THEMES', true);
    
    /** Loads the WordPress Environment and Template */
    require('./wp-blog-header.php');
    ?>

    I do not know where to go from here, so any help would be appreciated

    Hi pepper2,

    So I did a little research and I see that WebMatrix is for developing sites on your local computer and then publishing those sites to a web hosting account when you're ready. If I understand you correctly, you are still in the first stages of running this from your local computer and the issue sound like it's with the WebMatrix or Web Platform Installer application. While I'm sure we would all love to help, it would be difficult for us to troubleshoot since we can't see your local computer setup.

    Alternatively, you could try a different local development platform such as WAMPServer or XAMPP.

    Thank you ChristNi
    That is correct I was developing a site on my home computer with the intention of transferring the site to a hosting service.
    After some initial hiccups it worked OK.

    I have now had some other problems and it could well be the early stages of a HDD problems. This is now my priority.

    If I do need to do some major work on the computer I certainly will think of Wamp or Xampp as a replacement. I am well backed up.
    Thank you for your reply.
