    Hi guys,

    I hope you can help me :) I'm having a problem installing wordpress on my own computer. I downloaded the installer and proceded with the install everything works great until it finishes downloading and reaches the 14th component (mysql 5.1).
    I tried clicking on canceling and it gets stuck there as well.
    (I let it stay this way for over 2 hours, so it's definetaly stuck)
    I tried restarting and it seems like it didn't finish installing it since it didn't configure my mysql server.

    I tried uninstalling everything and reinstalling and it got stuck at the same point.
    Can someone please give me a hand and help with it?

    Thanks :)
    Fabian

    Well I installed Xampp.
    However, I found myself with a different problem, even though I've selected English when I entered the http://localhost/xampp/splash.php
    site, when I clicked on PhpMyAdmin, it appeared in German and I couldn't find the way to put it back in English.

    Does anyone has an idea how can I run the phpmyadmin in English?

    Thanks a bunch! :)

    log into localhost/phpmyadmin
    1st page - in middle - you can select any language
