Support » Installing WordPress » Program to make WP run offline

  • It getting pissed by editing/uploading/refreshing all the time. Anyone here can recommend a software I can install on my unit where I can install WP?
    Preferably, one of those stupidproof programs, where all Ihave to do it install it and install WP and it will work.
    Thanks.

  • If you’re talking about editing CSS (layout), use Firefox + Web Developer Extension. Other than that, if you’re messing with the site template, I guess that’s a different story.

    No more like an IIS and a mysql in one type of program. I want to see everything all at once. That too, I should check out. Id like to install WP on my PC.

    I think I’ll try btvillarin’s link. I already have the mySQL and myPHPAdmin a long time ago. I’m on dialup so it would be a pain to get the 20mb file.
    I have an earlier version of Apache [1.3.29] and it worked, but when I added the config for the PHP, it can’t detect the apache4php2.dll. I’m currently downloading the latest version of Apache right now, I hope this would run smooth.

    Warning: mysql_connect(): Access denied for user: ‘root@localhost’ (Using password: YES) in D:\websites\test.php on line 3
    Warning: mysql_select_db(): supplied argument is not a valid MySQL-Link resource in D:\websites\test.php on line 6
    Warning: mysql_query(): supplied argument is not a valid MySQL-Link resource in D:\websites\test.php on line 13
    Access denied for user: ‘root@localhost’ (Using password: YES)

    Help :(( Why am I getting that error? I don’t even recall typing “YES” anywhere. I just followed the instructions from http://wiki.wordpress.org/WordPressOnWinXP on the http://www.truedeath.com/guides/server_project.html site.

    That’s a DB connection error. I would suggest going for an integrated package like Xampp and requesting support there. These forums are focused on supporting WordPress, not Apache or MySQL, so you’d probably get much better help in a dedicated Windows/Apache/MySQL/PHP forum.

    Firepages phpdev,
    Apache, mysql, phpadmin bundle plus extras, configured out of the box, one click install.
    Download around 10mb which I downloaded on a 56k dialup
    firepages phpdev

    Am I right in saying that the index php can be saved locally as html. Then with the CSS it can be edited locally without mysql etc.

    Well, I finally got the XAMPP (lite version). The lite version is about 10mb. waited for it every second and when I’m instaling WP,
    ———-
    Step 3
    Fatal error: Cannot use object of type stdClass as array in C:\xampplite\htdocs\wordpress\wp-admin\upgrade-functions.php on line 705
    ———-
    I can now feel my head ache while blood is pumping. 😀 I’ll have a look on the Firepage phpdev.

    You’ve got version 1.4.6 of xampp ?
    That has php5
    Version 1.4.4 has php4

    Warning: mysql_connect(): Access denied for user: ‘root@localhost’ (Using password: YES) in D:\websites\test.php on line 3

    This means you used a password when you tried to connect to mysql. Have you set up the tables and permissions?
    The root account might not actually work as it’s probably a linux box (which has a root account) your server runs on. You’ll need to add users to your database too.
