    As the title says I am following the WordPress Ground Zero [00: Installing WordPress on Xampp]guide. At the moment I have reached the point where I have to configure phpmyadmin. The only problem is that it is unvailable. Every time I press the link it says something like "Server failure in the program "Default Web Site"

    HTTP-fel 404.0 - Not Found

    Description: The resource you are looking for has been removed, renamed or is not available for the moment"

    Since I am new in the subject of servers, wordpress and xampp I have no idea how to fix it.

    Any suggestions?

    With regards,

    what happens when you go to :

    to access the phpmyadmin panel go to the url: localhost/phpmyadmin.

    Make sure all the services especailly apache and mysql show started in xampp

    you have to open your browser and type localhost/phpmyadmin in the address bar to go to it. :)

    Check system tray and if xampp creates problems try wamp.

    Make sure you are logged in to your system with administrator rights as services require those priviledges to run.

    Is the localhost/xampp working? If it is not, you can try starting the Apache service manually.

    Type services.msc in the Start Menu. Find Apache, right-click and Start. Reload your browser. Do also check that the mysql service is set to Start too.

    Another reason for your localhost being unavailable is that it may be blocked for direct communication by some third party applications or software you previously had installed. It is especially possible with cracked applications you use and blocked to avoid connecting to the net and local resources.

    If this is the case with you then go and find your hosts file:
    For Windows 7 - C:\Windows\System32\drivers\etc
    1. Open it with Notepad or another word or HTML editor
    2. Find the line or lines that uses localhost phrase
    It should be something like this - localhost
    3. Delete the entire line.
    4. Save the file.
    5. Access localhost/phpmyadmin again via your browser.
