    Hi, lonetundrawolf! MAMP has known the Virtual server for MacOS. You’re using Win 10, if you don’t have much experience I recommend for XAMPP https://www.apachefriends.org/download.html
    It’s easy to use.

    XAMPP is working for me on windows 10.

    Delete Wp-config File and Reinstall.

    Hi, I am trying to download the app for WordPress. It stated that it would take five minutes to get blogging, WRONG! I used the same program a couple of years ago, and it did not require the extra knowledge of HTML, CSS, and other features. Can someone suggest how to achieve this without going through all of the technical details?

    @lizk21 perhaps you were hoping to set-up a blog via wordpress.com?

    wordpress.com is for blogs hosted by WordPress, similiar to blogger, simple and quick set-up but you have a domain that is:

    someblogname.wordpress.com

    wordpress.org is for self-hosted blogs run on your own domain, takes a little more time to set-up, requires a registered domain that you own and you pay for hosting (GoDaddy, Name Cheap, etc), and has it’s own name:

    myownsite.com
