Installing WordPress Locally (localhost)

  • I just downloaded a fresh updated copy of WordPress. I would like to install on my local host device for quicker testing/development, etc. Problem occurs when installation process asks to create a new database connection.

    “The source is invalid.
    Cannot connect to the database.
    Cannot connect to the database.
    Access denied for user benr72@localhost (using password: YES).”

    I’m truly not understanding this since this is a fresh new install on windows 7 with full admin privileges (Even using Administrator at login).

    Any hellp would be great.

  • Wait…nevermind…..

    So apparently, the db connection was setup already. The password for admin was totally incorrect…my bad..sorry for the post!

    Nope..it didn’t work..ok, I’m at my wits end…

    I even tried uninstalling MySQL drivers, etc from my local machine..tried a fresh install again.
