I’m trying to install XAMPP and WordPress on my local Windows 10 PC. XAMPP install went smoothly when I used port 81 instead of 80 (competes with Microsoft.) Apache and MySQL startup fine. No problem setting up new database with MyPHPAdmin. I start the WordPress install with localhost:81/wordpress and up comes the WordPress installation script. I select English, enter the database name user name and password. I change localhost to localhost:81, then click Submit. It freezes with “Waiting for localhost” in the lower left-hand corner of my browser. What am I missing? Thanks so much!!
