A newbie question. Could be an installation problem.
I installed Drupal 6.1 on my local machine (Windows XP Japanese Home Edition Version 2002, SP2) under xampp-win32-1.6.6a, i.e.
PHP 5.2.5 + PHP 4.4.8 + PEAR
PHP-Switch win32 1.0
XAMPP Control Version 2.5 from www.nat32.com
XAMPP Security 1.0
Mercury Mail Transport System v4.52
FileZilla FTP Server 0.9.25
Zend Optimizer 3.3.0a
eAccelerator 0.9.5.2 for PHP 5.2.5
During the Drupal installation, on the "Configure site" page, I input all the necessary information and click on the "save and continue" button. My Firefox (V.188.8.131.52) then keeps waiting for localhost even after 10 minutes.
So I cancel the waiting and click the button again. Firexfox saids "Drupal already installed". I click the link "View your existing site."
On the "Welcome to your new Drupal website", I type in my user name, password and I login.
Now on the left sidebar I just find three link items: My account, Administer and Log out. There's no "create content", and I'm just wondering if I had done anything wrong.
