I read in google many solutions but nothing worked. So depressing.

Great tutorial!
btw. He saved wp-config.php by mistake as wp-config.txt (happens to me very
often as well) . Thats why wordpress asked DB, username and password again.

I notice is when you renamed the WP-config-sample.php to WP-config, you
ended up with WP-config-php.txt when I ended up with WP-config.php. which
one is correct? Thanks in advance

John Turner says:

My XAMPP 3.2.1 was working fine, but now Apache only runs for about 2
seconds and then turns off. MySQL is working ok. Does anybody know why
Apache is now turning off after just a few seconds when it wasn’t doing
that before?

Habeas Corpus Canada says:

I followed your instructions in this video, and lo & behold, I managed to
instal WordPress in Xampp, and I’ve built a little web site. Now, what I
can’t find is how to move the site into online hosting. I can’t find any
info on this anywhere. I’m stuck with a web site whose url is localhost,
and no clue how to take it live. Big hint! Have you done a video yet on
this, if not, could you please do one? Thank you!

Olivet Macualay says:

good tutorial, i love this!

tieinvestor says:

Great tutorial. I have an existing wordpress website already but I want to
use XAMPP to make edits offline, then send the updates to the site when I’m
done. Can I use Filezilla to rip my website and put it into the htdocs
folder? If I rip it will it take a long time?

smirkoner says:

Awesome video! Question: Can you explain the purpose of setting up the
server in phpmyadmin? I understood the instructions, but I did not
understand the reason we needed to do that. Also, how does the
username,password, and db_name change when you choose to publish your site?
Thanks for making this!

Great tutorial. I’ve been looking for a straightforward tutorial on how to
use a free WordPress website template on my local PC, and edit it before
