WordPress Tip: Install WordPress Locally

Oct 31, 2009 • general, wordpress

You can install WordPress locally on your computer if you're traveling or planning to be offline and you still want to work with WordPress.

I also embedded this video in a WordPress wiki that I'm developing.

Installing WordPress locally involves about 6 steps:

  1. Download and install Wampserver.
  2. Create a database in phpmyadmin.
  3. Add a user with privileges to the database.
  4. Download WordPress and extract to a folder in the www directory.
  5. Customize the wp-config-sample.php file.
  6. Run the WordPress install script at wp-admin/install.php.
