    If you are using WAMP and cannot get the wordpress project to open because you get "Server Not Found", then you can edit a line in the file "index.php" in c:wamp64www directory (assuming you are using wamp64 and www as your localhost directory…).
    There is a line that reads in php:
    $suppress_localhost = ($wampConf['urlAddLocalhost'] == 'off' ? true : false);
    Change this to:
    $suppress_localhost = false;
    You can change it with Note.exe or Notepad++ or whatever you like.

    Then Restart All Services in wamp and the project link for wordpress will work.
    Thanks for the super-useful video.

    you should really go into more detail about what phpmyadmin is and what to do with it. I want to like what your offering us, but its incredibly hard right now. Its very frustrating.

    I have just started using wordpress. But for my own I want to follow step 3 (educational purposes). But I have one question, you said that later on you can transfer it to a webhost. Say I make my own website on my pc and I'm content. To transfer this to a webhost is this a costly affair or is it free (like wordpress)?

    Thx in advance

    For a start page, all I get is one that says "MAMP" and it has three icons I can click on, two of which bring up lots of folders, none of which leads to a "phpMyAdmin" icon or folder. My OS is Mac OS X Sierra. The "preferences" icon goes to a page with tabs "start/stop," "ports," "PHP," "Web Server," and "MySQL." "PHP" just gives the version (7.1.1). What am I doing wrong to start this thing?
