Installing Drupal On A Localhost
Lesson One of my special Getting Started With Drupal series of instructional videos.
This video shows how to install Drupal to a localhost on a Windows based computer. Wampserver is used to create the proper environment.
UPDATE: Be aware that if you install the latest version of Wampserver and combine it with Drupal 6.13 or above you will likely get the following error. Deprecated: Function ereg() is deprecated in C:\wamp\www\drupal\includes\file.inc on line 902
The error is caused by the fact that the newer version of Wampserver utilizes version 5.3 of PHP and the latest version of Drupal does not support PHP 5.3. You can remedy the issue by installing an earlier version of Wampserver that has the 5.2 branch of PHP. Wampserver 2.0h (found at this link) includes PHP 5.2.9-2. Another option is to use another stack installer such as the Acquia Drupal Stack Installer.
