Ok. So I’m trying to set get the blank starlets WordPress theme into dreamweaver but I need help setting up the server and linking dreamweaver to it. I’m new and obviously mildly retarted lol can someone PLEASE PLEASE help me out. If anyone feels like calling me and walking me through everything I would pay you if absolutely necessary but for free would be nice. Just email me at email@example.com. Ill try to return the favor however I can. Thanks guys.
+ Download and Install xampp, then start it
+ Download WordPress and unzip it to `/htdocs` folder, so you get `/htdocs/wordpress` you can rename it if you like
+ Then in your browser, type http://localhost/phpmyadmin
+ Create new database
+ Then go to http://localhost/wordpress, click Create a Configuration File
+ Enter database name you just created, username is `root`, password is blank, host is `localhost` and table prefix leave it as is.
+ Run the Install.
+ Enter site detail and user info, and you’re done.
Now all you need to do is open up, Dreamwaver and point it to the `/htdocs/wordpress` folder
Yeah I figured out the template issue but when I go into wo-admin/install and then preview it in the browser it tells me my PHP isn’t working. But xampp says everything is fine. I’m so confused lol. Dude if you feel like calling me and gettin this set up for me ill pay u or we. I REALLY need this set up and I’m done fiddling around myself bc I obv dot know what I’m doing.
I haven’t used Dreamwaver is so long so, and I remember they had a wizard that helps you set up your site locally, so not sure if DW has some kind of special feature that sets up WordPress in similar fashion.
Are you using Live View mode to view your site inside DW? I suggest loading it in the browser, any errors you get there are the errors you care about… DW could be doing something on it’s own here
Ok so I think I got everything working. Almost. One issue left. When I click on the index.php file it gives me an error message abt the PHP get header on line 1. Also when I’m in live view on index.php when I click on discover related files it doesn’t open up all the other files in the theme.
