    i'm having problems in installing wordpress in localhost. i am using xampp, i already configured the wp-config.php with the right settings. but i manually add the database for wordpress in mysql using phpmyadming. what's wrong with the installation?

    I am afraid that's not enough info to enable us to tell "what's wrong".

    I hope the order described above is not the real one:
    1. editing wp-config
    2. creating the database

    It should go the other way around: otherwise you don't know what to put in the wp-config file :)
    See if this tutorial helps: http://www.tamba2.org.uk/wordpress/xampp/
