I am using the 'Famous 5-minute Install', now 55 minutes into it. Steps (1), (2), and (3) have not gone well. Have not made it to steps (4) nor (5) yet.
1. I downloaded 'FreeFiles UnZip', which is now on my desktop. I have no idea what to do with it, but it's there.
2. I downloaded the free version of 'MySQL'. Should this also be on my desktop? I do not know where to find this now that I have downloaded it.
3. I cannot
'wp-config-sample.php' to rename it, or I would. I have looked in the C: directory, but I have no idea what I am doing or looking for. Where do I find this and how do I rename it?
Steps (4), (5), and (6) seem incredibly daunting and so difficult that I'm not sure I will ever be able to use WordPress. I did not think it would be this difficult to start a website and a blog. Can anyone speak this process in simpler English, please? I really do not get it at all.
