I'm tring to install Drupal 7.9 on an XAMPP 1.7.7 server running on Win XP
I have Apache and MySql running on the control panel
Installed drupal folder to htdocs I even created a copy of the default.settings.php and renamed it settings
Created the drupal dbase and gave it all privileges
When I enter http://localhost/drupal
I keep getting error
plus I get this message "Connection for controluser as defined in your configuration failed."
