I am an upcoming developer in CMS.I am trying to develop a personal website . For which one of my friend recommended wordpress. I have read and watched few videos and planned to install the wordpress.
System info =>
O/s : Win 7 32 bit
Stand- alone installtion
PHP : 5.3.6
I have extracted the wordpress files and saved it under the "C:\Apache\htdocs" folder. When I run the local host it shows up a list of files.
From where I have to open the index.php and then setup the details database,localhost.. etc. However dashboard page dosent come up on its own.
Alternate Method : On my other machine where in I am using winxp and WAMP stack ... I copied the WP files into the "C:\wamp\www\ " folder. I am able to launch and view the website and dashboard from the my browser window.
Question : What settings do i need to do for the standalone webserver installation that i can view the website/dashboard just by typing the url http://localhost/ ?
