I am creating a webpage from scratch and want to dit it locally before I upload the site.
XAMPP is installed and working properly (I tested the initial PHP file). I created the mdev database in MyPHPAdmin, double checked the privileges. I downloaded WP 5.4 and unzipped in the HTdocs directory. That created htdocs/wordpress-5.4/wordpress directory.
Next I changed the name of wpcofig-sample.php to wp-config.php. Starting on line 23 I changed the database name to ‘wpmdev’ user to ‘root’ and password to ”.
localhost/wordpress yields “object not found”. I have been working on this for 3 1/2 hours and looked at around 5 tutorials (they all say basically the same thing), and still no success.
