Installing wordpress with EasyPHP on localhost on Windows 7

tech Add comments

Just a quick note for anyone who has the same problem.

I was trying to install WordPress locally (on top of EasyPHP) and it just would not work.

I set up the database, modified the wp-config.php file with the database details Рand went to  http://localhost/wordpress/ and it would sit there spinning and doing nothing.

And http://127.0.0.1/wordpress/ didn’t do anything either.

Did some hunting around and found out that localhost is no longer defined as 127.0.0.1 on Windows 7!

Had to edit the c:\windows\system32\drivers\etc\hosts file and uncomment the localhost line.

(BTW Had to run cmd as administrator and then run notepad c:\windows\system32\drivers\etc\hosts).

That made it work.
