Support » Installing WordPress » problem installing WP on localhost

  • cmmcwain


    I would like to build a custom theme for my site, so I was advised to use XAMPP and build and test my theme on my local server.

    The XAMPP install went great. I entered the database name, username, and password I created in myPHPadmin, but when I go to install WP I get a “can’t connect to database error.

    I have scanned the wp-config.php file to see if I made a mistake but I can’t find any.

    Can anyone possibly help?

    Thank you,
