Installing wordpress with EasyPHP on localhost on Windows 7

Uncategorized 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 didn’t do anything either.

Did some hunting around and found out that localhost is no longer defined as 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.
