I haven't been able to get WordPress to install locally for the first time.
I have xampp running. I created a database 'ferncreek' in phpMyAdmin. I made sure that the user 'root' has all privileges. I modified the wp-config-sample.php file to show my database name, database username, and password (I also tried this with the password field blank) and saved it as wp-config.php.
I went through the wp installation process, and it said that it couldn't access the database. I try to go to http://localhost/ferncreek/ and get a "page not found" error message.
Am I overlooking something?
