[Resolved] cannot install wordpress in local

  • Hi guys. Will be brief.
    Trying to run wordpress in local since 2 days.
    Red tons of posts.
    Made tons of tries.
    Getting frustrated.
    Here is the issue:
    I have win XP, I followed the instructions below:
    Installing WordPress on Your Windows Desktop
    1.Download and install XAMPP.
    2.This installs by default into C:/xampplite or C:\xampp.
    3.Start XAMPP from c:\xampplite or c:\xampp.
    4.You may need to restart your computer to allow apache services to start.
    5.In your browser, go to http://localhost/xampp.
    6.In the left column under Tools, click phpMyAdmin.
    7.Login is admin.
    8.In Create new database enter wordpress.
    9.In the next box, select utf8 unicode ci.
    10.Click Create button.
    11.Unzip your WordPress download into the htdocs directory – c:\xampp\htdocs\<yourwebsite>.
    12.From the <yourwebsite> folder, open wp-config.php in a text editor.
    13.The connection details you need are as follows:
    // ** MySQL settings ** //
    define(‘DB_NAME’, ‘wordpress’); // The name of the database
    define(‘DB_USER’, ‘root’); // Your MySQL username
    define(‘DB_PASSWORD’, ”); // …and password
    define(‘DB_HOST’, ‘localhost’); // 99% chance you won’t need to change this
    14.Save as wp-config.php.
    15.Install by going to http://localhost/wordpress/wp-admin/install.php

    when I try the point 15 I get:
    // ** MySQL settings ** // define(‘DB_NAME’, ‘super’); // The name of the database define(‘DB_USER’, ‘root’); // Your MySQL username define(‘DB_PASSWORD’, ”); // …and password define(‘DB_HOST’, ‘localhost’); // 99% chance you won’t need to change this
    Fatal error: Call to undefined function __() in C:\xampp\htdocs\wordpress\wp-admin\includes\file.php on line 11

    thank you for your time
