    Hi Adeel,

    Just to confirm if you go into the 'conference' folder under your localhost section all the WordPress files are in there (wp-config.php, wp-cron.php, wp-settings.php etc)?

    I assume those credentials match the user that you have created in your MySQL database?
    Have you set the 'Database Host' to 'localhost'.
