    Hi All,

    I am an upcoming developer in CMS.I am trying to develop a personal website . For which one of my friend recommended wordpress. I have read and watched few videos and planned to install the wordpress.

    System info =>
    O/s : Win 7 32 bit
    Stand- alone installtion
    Apache: 2.2
    MySQl: 5.5
    PHP : 5.3.6
    Wordpress :3.2.1

    I have extracted the wordpress files and saved it under the "C:\Apache\htdocs" folder. When I run the local host it shows up a list of files.
    From where I have to open the index.php and then setup the details database,localhost.. etc. However dashboard page dosent come up on its own.

    Alternate Method : On my other machine where in I am using winxp and WAMP stack ... I copied the WP files into the "C:\wamp\www\ " folder. I am able to launch and view the website and dashboard from the my browser window.

    Question : What settings do i need to do for the standalone webserver installation that i can view the website/dashboard just by typing the url http://localhost/ ?

    Please Advice...

  2. Try searching your Apache Server's httpd.conf for something like

    DirectoryIndex index.html

    and add a space and "index.php" to that line.
