I am working on a project that requires me to use Windows for a Wordpress install. Unfortunately I cannot seem to get my code to run on the WampServer I am beta testing on so I needed to install it locally to make debugging easier. Since it has been since college since I setup and installed a web server on Windows (IIRC) I ran into a couple hurdles. The most aggravating was PHPMyAdmin because I kept getting an “Access Denied” error. Well after a good bit o’ Google-fu I finally found a solution that worked.
