I have returned to WP theme designing and editing and am trying to do so with WordPress on my localhost IIS8 Win8 PC but have had several problems with this and now notably that I cannot upload media.
It is a blooming pain as far as I can see manually running WP on IIS8 localhost (& before anyone tells me to use the WebPI WP install I've tried that, but it won't complete the install as it asks for my MySQL DB details yet when I give them it refuses them!).
Does anyone have ideas to fix the media upload? Does this rely on FTP?
What folders should the images go to (I cannot see an uploads folder in wwwroot>wordpress...)?
I'd like to run WP on Windows localhost, so am not wanting LAMP/WAMP apache localhost alternatives...Does anyone have such a setup with it running successfully?
I'm grateful for helpful replies, thanks
