  • Is your server software started/running?

    On my laptop, I use wampserver to install WP locally. Any time the computer restarts, I need to manually go in and ‘start’ the server

    Thanks Rev Voodoo

    I’m a newbie here, I installed the package from the link above, what is the name of the server and how to I start it?

    Update: I opened my MySQL server and entered my password to start it up, but I am still unable to connect to the localhost.

    Ah, I am completely unfamiliar with Web PI, and hadn’t read that stuff, sorry about that

    I’m not 100% certain if/how it may need to be ‘started’

    If you open up the web pi thing from the start menu, can you find a way in from there? I’m cruising around google, but not finding anything too helpful so far…

    I am having the same problem where i uploaded the site to GoDaddy using filezilla and to get real time access to the new website they asked me to change the host-name and password pointing to the website from within the WordPress – Settings.

    Now i cannot access the local website as it through me back to the website URL where this was pointed to.

    I want to access my local website to continue developing it. How can i do that?

    I am using WordPress 3.5 & Wampserver 2.2

    Urgent Help needed as i wanted to get the website live before New Years!
