Hi, I'm new to WordPress but generally pretty careful about following instructions. I'm trying to set up WordPress locally using XAMPP, following the instructions on this page:
I got to the point where I was instructed to enter http://localhost/wordpress/wp-admin/install.php into my browser (tried this first using Firefox, then IE ... same result for both). I get the following error message:
Fatal error: Call to undefined function is_wp_error() in C:\xampp\htdocs\wordpress\wp-includes\functions.php on line 1320
I deleted everything once and carefully went back through the setup process again. Same result.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
