Running WordPress Locally With WAMP

  • I solved the problem!

    This video assisted me all the way.

    Just in case others run into the same problem, if you are unable to access the ‘PHPMyAdmin’ by searching for http://localhost/ in your browser, try http://127.0.0.1/ instead and you’ll be able to access it now. Your MYSQL information will be revealed on the ‘PHPMyAdmin’ homepage, such as the server name, username and password.

    Next, you have to create a new database which you will input when configuring WordPress. Change the ‘MYSQL’ username to ‘root’ and leave the password completely blank. As for the localhost, leave it as localhost or use 127.0.0.1 if an error occurs.

    This should solve the problem but make sure that you extract WordPress into c:/wamp/www. The next steps are straight forward.

    Thanks for this!! It really helped 🙂

    You’re welcome.
