    long coding but i have one question why its gives Server error?



    Hi howarddrive,

    To installing WordPress on localhost, you shouldn’t edit/create a new wp-config.php file (it will be generated automatically).

    So please extract a new WordPress to your htdocs folder then access it by url: localhost/wordpress

    it will displaying the install wizard, you can fill your DB information (username, password, db name) there

    Hi Shinjing

    I too have the similar challenge. Different as I did not do any manual entry to wp-config.php and I did not receive any error messages. My address bar reads…


    browser screen is blank

    OS=Win7 (up to date with all SP’s and Updates)
    XAMP Ver=1.7.1 (No erreor during install or use)
    Wordpress Ver=3.4.2

    Thank you
