I have XAMPP installed with Filezilla/MySLQ/Apache/phpMyAdmin, which all seem to be up and running ok.
I transfered all the WP files to my root directory with filezilla, entered my info for the wp-config file and uploaded it to the root site as well but I still cant access the WP install screen. Ive tried tinkering with the file permissions, the way the files are uploaded (binary or ASCII)and still nothing. Even downloaded with WP for dummies book and still nothing.
I work with WP at work, making changes etc so I know my way around it pretty well, but I just cant install the thing and it's driving me batty.
FWIW, this is a site for my parents office.
Trying to access osmaklaw.com/wp-admin/install.php annnnnnd nothing.
Again, once I get going I'll be fine and I'm just really frustrated cause im sure it's an easy fix and I just feel like a n00b.
Tried contacting the web guy my parents use but he's MIA
