    This is only a partial setup. Without setting up the ftp properly (used to be sn:root pw:root) and file path done properly like I was saying without doing this adding modules into your system will not install through the install feature on your backend.

    like I was saying the old wamp servers used to use root/root as the default screen name and password. I don’t think my password is correct but the right password and user has the be keyed in for this to work properly.

      actually, it’s not ftp but you need to setup database before installing Joomla as already mentioned in the beginning of the guide

    Hey,
    Let me first thank you for all the help you’ve provided. I’ve successfully installed WampServer and now operate WordPress and Joomla (just installed today) on my System. One problem that I ran into was when I downloaded the version in the tutorial and tried to unzip it. While unzipping it asked to overwrite the a good many files. I believe that older files wanted to replace newer files.
    When I tried to continue with it I got error message after error message.

    How I got around it: I went to the joomla site and downloaded the latest stable zip version (for new installs). Unzipped it and your tutorials worked like a charm. I’m now a happy 1.5.2x Joomla user. Thank you so very much. Cheers
