I have finished the beginner course and have just started the intermediate course. I am trying to set up wordpress to run on my laptop. In the set-up process, when I try to set up the Configuration file, I get the following message:
Sorry, but I can't write the wp-config.php file.
You can create the wp-config.php manually and paste the following text into it.
[screen with text to copy is in a window here]
After you've done that, click "Run the install."
Did I do something wrong? How do I move forward?

Can't get wordpress to write the wp-config.php file

What software are you using for localhost? For example, WAMP, MAMP, Uniserver, Xampp, etc. Also, are you using a Mac Windows operating system for your computer?
Either way, all you have to do is go to where you installed Wordpress. So the same folder that contains your wp-admin folder, wp-content folder, and wp-includes folder. Then, in there create a "wp-config.php" and paste your code into the file. You can use an editor to do that or depending on your laptop, right click and create a new file.
