I just installed XAMPP, and got a local copy of a WordPress site up and running - everything except permalinks, tried uncommenting the 'LoadModule rewrite_module modules/mod_rewrite.so' - didn't work. Figured working without pretty permalinks locally is not the end of the world - decided to reboot the machine and, uch,'Object not found!' when i try to open the same folder on localhost. XAMPP and all its bits still seem fine, can see the database via MyPHP etc.
So close, and yet... :- (
Win XP, WordPress 2.0.1, any ideas?
