  • 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’.


    dear timothy…

    thanks for reply..
    matter has been resolved.

    but when i create new data base its not made by root and blank password.


    Hi Adeel,

    Thanks. Glad it’s sorted!
