My First HTML Program

Drupal 7 in XAMPP on Windows 7


Step 1: Download XAMPP
Step 2: Open XAMPP Control Panel
Step 3: Start Apache and Start MySQL*
Step 4: Download Drupal
Step 5: Extract Drupal in XAMPP/htdocs**
Step 6: Rename XAMPP/htdocs/drupal-7.10 to XAMPP/htdocs/drupal
Step 7: Now go to http://localhost It will redirect you to http://localhost/xampp
Step 8: Click on phpMyAdmin which will be at bottom left place in sidebar
Step 9: Create new database named drupal
Step 10: Now go to Privileges and add a new user. ex.. username-root and password-admin
Step 11: Go to http://localhost/drupal***
Step 12: Select profile as Standard then your prefered language and database as MySQL,MariaDB,or equivalent and give new username and password
Step 13: You are done!

*If you are having problem with XAMPP Control Panel with Start and Stop options then shut XAMPP down completely and Run It As Administrator

**If you are using WAMP instead of XAMPP then go to www folder

***If you are not able to execute Step 11 (object not found error or Drupal Already Installed) then go to XAMPP/htdocs/drupal/sites/default and copy default.settings.php in same place and rename copied file to settings.php
