Support » Localhost Installs » localhost blues

  • I am very new at WordPress, as a matter of fact I am a novice! I’m trying to setup my localhost in my home computer (Windows 7 Pro). I am also a student doing web design (Veteran). This is what I’ve done so far;

    1. Copied my WordPress 3.5 files to my xampp directory
    2. Identify my htdocs directory and placed the files in my directory
    3.Went to my wp-config.php and changed my define(‘DB_HOST’, ‘localhost’);
    as it said in the book.
    I’m getting this: Error establishing a database connection

    In my live site everything is working so I’m wondering why. Oh, btw I have my xampp turned on on both Apache and MySQL.

    Help please!!
