    Same issue here...

    Ok. I dowloaded joomla and I thougt it was similar to dreamweaver or iweb. I thought it was a stand alone cms or website builder with templates.

    anyway, I read the instructions, I was told to download XAMpp or mamp. Well, I don't know why xampp doesn't work maybe i did something wrong. Well, i went ahead and downloaded Mamp. Now, this works and i have both apahce and mysql running. Now, its time to install joomla and i can't since i don't know my dbase user name: root and password: root and host: localhost doesn't work.

    My question is this. What's the purpose of mysql, apache, etc.. this is a host development software. Why do I need it to use joomla? Joomla doesn't have its own preview screen or something?
