I'm new to the world of WP and today I tried to experiment with WP in combination with the XAMPP Apache server and MySQL (v3.1.0 beta4).
The server runs locally without problems and I have wordpress installed in the correct folder (C:\xampp portable\htdocs). I have then created an new database. So far, so good. Next step is to run the install.php script, I enter all required fields and then click the button Install WordPress. Then it goes wrong.
I get a screen with website not found. It seems like there is no connection, but in the database, I see that there are wp_ tables created (11 pieces). What is striking is that the table contains no rows WP_users.
When I drop all the tables I 'm able to install WP again but again with the same negative result.
Who knows what I'm doing wrong?
Kind Regards Ronnie
