Drupal/Xampp Help Needed

Postby Mantash » Fri Nov 18, 2011 4:10 pm

I'm tring to install Drupal 7.9 on an XAMPP 1.7.7 server running on Win XP
I have Apache and MySql running on the control panel

Installed drupal folder to htdocs I even created a copy of the default.settings.php andrenamed it settings

Created the drupal dbase and gave it all privileges

When I enter http://localhost/drupal I keep getting error
plus I get this message "Connection for controluser as defined in your configuration failed."

Any Ideas?

Go to https://network.acquia.com/downloads and download Acquia Dev Desktop for windows. Acquia Drupal is a free packaged Drupal distribution for building Drupal websites on the fly. It is easy to configure since the installer already includes Drupal, Apache, MySQL and PHP.

The installation is straight forward. But in case you have issues, check this site: http://gotdrupal.com/videos/installing-acquia-drupal for drupal installation tutorials.

Hope this helps. If you have more questions, just ask.
