    Do you need to reinstall wordpress for each new database in XAMPP and if not, please provide any info of procedures. I have tried everything and cannot get my new database to work.

    If you want to use wordpress in XAMPP, go into XAMPP under http://localhost/ or http://127.0.0.1/ and on the bottom left, under tools to enter PHPmyAdmin. Create a new database, then on the top click credentials. It will have a username. Remember it. o into the place you installed wordpress and let the server be localhost. The username should be what you saw in the credentials (usually "root") and the password should be blank.

    That's it.

    hello thereļ¼
    here I also have problem installing wordpress on xampp.
    i did everything (making new database, etc) but it always fails on the "famous 5 minutes wordpress installation"
    it gets stuck there, and goes error, when i try to re-do the same process it tells me that wordpress has already installed and i have to erase the database etc if i want to re-install it

    and it happens so many times, i`ve done it like 5 times (install and un install it) now,
    anyone who might give me some clue what is happening here?

    thanks a bunch!!!
