  • 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/

    thanks! it worked.

    Hey,

    I have installed exactly like tutorial says, but I have winxp pro on my system. How to remove IIS, cant find it in services?

    got this error:

    Parse error: syntax error, unexpected $end in C:\xampplite\htdocs\wordpress\wp-config.php on line 21

    line 21 looks like this:

    ?>
