I really need your help with setting up a local server, I've tried everyrthing and it's driving me insane. I've istalled xampp and it is working ok. I have bought a php script called wlol and am trying to modify the templates a little bit. I've followed a tutorial that shows how to set up a local server using xampp and dreamweaver. I followed the instructiones to the letter but when all is done and I click on the index.php I can see the code view but when I click on discover and then on live view I get this message :
Fatal error: Class 'WLOL' not found in C:\xampp\htdocs\fulkul\index.php on line 21
Can somedbody please help me, this is driving me insane!
Are your local site files inside XAMPP/htdocs/yoursite/?
David Powers has some very good tutorials on setting up a PHP Environment with various Local Testing Servers including XAMPP.

Thanks Nancy but it still doesn't work. I have followed Davids tutorial on setting up the local server, I've put my whole website folder in the htdocs folder, but when i click on live view I still get the same error?!
I've followed the instructions from David and when I tried to create a database on phpmyadmin, I noticed you have to import a file with .sql ending. I searched my folder but there is no file with sql. The script I am using is already operational online and it works fine, but when I try to modify it i dreamweaver I get this error while trying to view in live mode.
Maybe there's some wonky code in your php file.
Are you able to see a date and time in your test page?
