I have tried for 2 days to try to get this installed locally. Fresh install of wordpress 3.4.2 and xampp 3.1.0
MySQL database is set up
MySQL user is set up
Modified config file
Apache running ports 80, 443
MySQL running port 3306
Go to this url:
and get this error:
Object not found!
The requested URL was not found on this server. If you entered the URL manually please check your spelling and try again.
Apache/2.4.3 (Win32) OpenSSL/1.0.1c PHP/5.4.7
Now in everyone's instructions it does not say to create a wp-admin folder so I think that is why this link (http://localhost/wordpress/wp-admin/install.php) does not work. Did I miss something or do I not need to create this folder.
So I went out on a limb and created the wp-admin folder and put everything with wp- in the name in this folder then when I go to this url(http://localhost/wordpress/wp-admin/install.php), I get the below error
Warning: require(C:\xampp\htdocs\wordpress/wp-includes/load.php): failed to open stream: No such file or directory in C:\xampp\htdocs\wordpress\wp-settings.php on line 21
Fatal error: require(): Failed opening required 'C:\xampp\htdocs\wordpress/wp-includes/load.php' (include_path='.;C:\xampp\php\PEAR') in C:\xampp\htdocs\wordpress\wp-settings.php on line 21
Please help, I'm about to give up. I know its something simple, thats why I put this install off for a few days and came back to it, to give myself fresh eyes.
