Installing joomla website on a localhost
Closed - This job posting has been filled and work has been completed.
I have a Joomla 3.2.3 *.jpa file (backup) and I would like to install it on my local host (I already installed XAMPP).
After trying to do this using Akeeba Kickstart 3.8.0 I got stuck during the restoration process in the step called "Restoration of site's main database" and this message appeared: "Unable to connect to the Database: Could not connect to MySQL."
I hope someone could help me installing my site on the local host.
