While installing WordPress in your local system you might get few standard problems like “error configuration”. In default installation you need to follow two steps for successful installation. First step we need to create database in the name of “wordpress”. Second step change the database Username to “root” and database Password to “”. If you follow the above two steps you can install wordpress without error.

Note: MySql database default username is root and password is “” (blank).

XAMPP Lite – Appache and MySql not running

If you are new to XAMPP Lite and using it in any other root of any other drive other than “c:\” then you might not be able to start Appache and MySql. When you click start in the xampp-control.exe it will show as services started in the textarea given but you wont be able to view the XAMPP default page. In this case try running “setup_xampp” batch file. In that console window it will ask “Should I locate the XAMPP paths correctly?” You need to type “y” and then it will ask for the drive in which you want to place XAMPP. After you give the drive letter it will make the setup. Try starting the Appache and MySql. It will start for sure.

IIS uses Integrated Authentication and by default IE has the ability to use your windows user account. So, if you want Firefox to act in the same manner then you need to make a quick configuration change.

1) Open up Firefox and type in about:config as the url

2) In the Filter Type in ntlm

3) Double click “network.automatic-ntlm-auth.trusted-uris” and type in localhost and hit enter

Making work both XAMPP and IIS on windows XP?

Default XAMPP install will attempt to install Apache as a service configured to run on Port 80. But, if you’re like me, and have IIS already installed and running, for whatever reason, you’ll probably want to configure XAMPP to run Apache on a different port.

Allow XAMPP to co-exist with IIS configured to run on Port 80, and Apache to run on Port 8080 (and SSL running on Port 4499):
• Search for “Listen 80″, change to “Listen 8080″
• Search for “ServerName localhost:80″, change to “ServerName localhost:8080″
• Search for “Listen 443″, change to “Listen 4499″
• Search for “”, change to “”
• Search for “ServerName localhost:443″, change to “ServerName localhost:4499″
Then, you should be able to start Apache successfully through the XAMPP control panel.
