How to make a WoW Private Server in 15 minutes!

Step 3: Logon Configuration

Picture of Logon Configuration
Right, now comes the funny part. Open the "ascent-logonserver.conf" with Notepad. There should be some text like that:

<LogonDatabase Hostname = ""
Username = "root"
Password = "ascent"
Name = "logon"
Port = "3306"
Type = "1">

If everything looks like this, you can close the file, if not, change it to this (exactly this).

Where exactly is ascent-logonserver.conf located because i cannot find it for the life of me.
EDIT: sorry i hav a newer version of AC, so ascent is renamed something else. Anyways i fixed it. :) thanks for the guide
and i don't seem to have an ascent folder either.
 Isn't the same as localhost?  I don't think it's necessary to change localhost to

yes, it's the same thing, but the IP number works better (for some people, localhost don't work)

dude I cant open the notepad. When it opens, it says cannot connect to server. maybe it's because I have a later version of .NET Framework or something?
