Doesn't Play Well with Others
I have setup a localhost on my computer. I am planning on migrating from wordpress.com and moving to a registered domain, and before I start shelling out the $$$, I would like to be somewhat familiar with what I am doing.
After installing PWS, I added WordPress software. Everything is working great, and I am loving what I see. Now I tried installing bbPress, so I can have a forum, and it is hairballing on me!
I am strongly suspicious that the problem lies somewhere with MySQL. I fill out the setup info, and it responds with:
There was a problem connecting to the database you specified.
Please check the settings, then try again.
Where do I find MySQL on my computer? Can I not have separate databases?
I am not a cyber-guru, and I am hoping that I don’t have to become one!
Any help you can provide would be great!
