I am a newbie and i am confused. I would install the Textpattern CMS from a Bitnami stack if available/ Running Windows 10 home with 8GB memory. I have installed XAMPP-win32-5.6.30-0-VC11 twice.
All the online guides for installing XAMPP indicate that I should create a user name and password during installation.
Could never figure out how to create the MySQL password. I was never asked to create user name and password. XAMPP installs correctly.
From the control panel I can start both Apache and MySql. I get to the welcome splash screen with http://localhost.com or just locahost. I get the localhost/dashboard screen.
How do I get any further?
Admin Apache >> Welcome to XAMPP screen
Config Apache >> opens an menu of Apache [Apache httpd.conf and so forth]
Admin SQL >> opens phpmyadmin
Config SQL >> opens an .ini file for systems with small amounts of memory; I haave 8GB of memory
localhost/security give 404 error (object not found).
i use myphpadmin to create a data base: textpattern
localhost/textpattern gives error 404
localhost/127.0.0.1/textpattern gives error 404
Any help appreciated.
