I just installed concrete5 on my wamp server on windows 7
It took me half an hour to find the info in the forum, mostly because I wanted to read lots of irrelevant stuff. But I noticed people got helped, things got fixed and now I too can say installation was about 5 minutes from start to finish and I just finished browsing through my dashboard in my fresh clean installation. Wordpress is ok but concrete5 makes so much more sense to me right off the mark.
Were you able to install Concrete5 ok? Did you get to the point where it gave you a password?
if you go tohttp://localhost/ do you get the WAMP admin page with the various subdirectories shown etc.
If so, on that page you should have a link to phpmyadmin - does that work if you click on it?
If not, do you have a firewall running?
This is my first attempt at doing anything with a database though (I'm clueless!) ... so I followed these instructions:
After I changed the password there and in config.inc.php, phpmyadmin says:
MySQL said: Documentation
#1045 - Access denied for user 'root'@'localhost' (using password: YES)
phpMyAdmin tried to connect to the MySQL server, and the server rejected the connection. You should check the host, username and password in your configuration and make sure that they correspond to the information given by the administrator of the MySQL server.
So no, I'm not finished installing Concrete5 because I haven't created the database (according to those instructions) yet :(
Thanks for your help, it's much appreciated!
Turns out that I hadn't successfully created a password (I pressed the wrong GO button!).
All is working now. Well so far ... I'm sure I'll have more questions!
In addition to adding your password between the ''s in config.inc.php you also need to change ['AllowNoPassword'] = true; ...to... = false;
