  9. Hello, I am very new to this, what about ubuntu users? How do I find wamp/xamp…?

  10. If you are having trouble opening up the local host, Change the port under the apache httpd:config where it says listen 80 or it may say listen or something like that. Change it to 81 or 8080 and save the file. You will need to now type in localhost:81 or localhost:8080 and you will see the dashboard.

    For phpmyadmin do this localhost:81/phpmyadmin

  11. Thank you a lot! A note from me for users: in LOCALHOST folder WordPress was not opening. I had manually write directory LOCALHOST/WORDPRESS to make it work. (I used wampserver in PC)

  15. Problem: I don’t want to sound like a “Doe-Dick” but for some reason, WampServer won’t install… Keeps saying that I have missing .dll files. Do you have a video on installing the PHP, MySQL, and Pearl via Apachi? Your assistance will be greatly appreciated. I ended up simply giving up. LOL

    Do you have a 2017 explanation how to do this online (instead of PC)? Thankyou.
