I am trying to setup WordPress on my local machine to create the whole template thing. I am fairly new to mysql and that stuff because I studied design and honestly don't really know what I am doing.
I downloaded Xampp 1.4.4 and let the installation run. After that I startet xampp with the startmenu link "xampp basic start" and copied the wordpress directory in the xampp dirctory.
Than I created a mysql database through the xampp configuration html site in firefox. I have called this database "wordpress".
After that I tried to edit the wp-config.php of wordpress. The database name is of course wordpress. I think the mysql username is after a fresh installation of xampp 'root' and there is no password. I entered both into the file, saved it and tried to run the wp-install.php.
But I get hundreds of errors. First of all it says that it cannot find the wp-config.php and than I get hundreads of error like this one throught the text:
hide_errors(); $installed = $wpdb->get_results("SELECT * FROM $wpdb->users"); if ($installed) die(__('
What did I do wrong and how can I fix this?
Thanks a lot
