I just set up Apache on my Windows XP machine - works great.
I just set up PHP5 - works great.
I just installed wordpress, but am having a problem.
After editing the wp-config file with the text:
define('DB_NAME', 'mydatabase'); // The name of the database
define('DB_USER', 'wordpress'); // Your MySQL username
define('DB_PASSWORD', '******'); // ...and password
define('DB_HOST', 'localhost:8080'); // 99% chance you won't need to change this value
the page just hangs when I try to view it ... it takes about 3 minutes of just constant "Loading..." and then it just stops and I am staring at a blank page.
If I get remove the port 8080 and just put localhost it says "Error connecting to database", so I'm pretty sure it is trying to connect to the database, but for some reason it won't???
Any help is DEEEEEEPLY appreciated!
