I'm a relative newbie... so please understand.
I have installed XAMPP and also WordPress and have imported my LIVE blog into the XAMPP localhost system and I think I did it all right according to a tutorial found on the net.
When I go to localhost/phpmyadmin I can get in and in the left column I see my blog (the database is called wordpress).. and when I click it all my files seem to be there.
However, when I try to enter localhost/wordpress I get an error message:Oops! Google Chrome could not find http://www.localhost
BUT if I type in 127.0.0.1/wordpress I get to my blog. It's pretty unstructured and lacking a theme... but it's there somewhat. Clicking on any of the articles however brings me back to the: Oops! Google Chrome could not find http://www.localhost
And yes, I have changed my wp-config.php to reflect localhost and the recommended settings there as follows:
I know there is just something minor that I have set wrong.. but I'll be damned if I can find it....
Can someone else??
Thanks in advance.
I might add that I just tried http://127.0.0.1/wordpress/?p=2862 and sure enough, I can get to the blogpost. (not in a theme) VERY WEIRD !!
