Support » Fixing WordPress » XAMPP Localhost WordPress Problem

  • 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 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:

    define(‘DB_NAME’, ‘wordpress’);
    define(‘DB_USER’, ‘root’);
    define(‘DB_PASSWORD’, ‘Jxxxx’);
    define(‘DB_HOST’, ‘localhost’);
    define(‘DB_CHARSET’, ‘utf8’);

    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 and sure enough, I can get to the blogpost. (not in a theme) VERY WEIRD !!
