    Hi I cannot get wordpress to install in localhost.

    When I try to install I get a blank page with wordpress logo on top. And tables are created in the database but they have no data.

    I checked the config file over and over and I do not see any errors.

    I've been googling for hours reading up on other people's suggestions and nothing has helped. I tried both Xampp and Wamp and neither worked.

    I need help. Please give me some ideas for what I can try.

    define('DB_NAME', 'wordpress');

    /** MySQL database username */
    define('DB_USER', 'root');

    /** MySQL database password */
    define('DB_PASSWORD', '');

    /** MySQL hostname */
    define('DB_HOST', 'localhost');
