Guide on Local WordPress Development
Local WordPress development implies that you develop a WordPress website on your local computer, rather than doing it live on the internet. This approach provides a faster, safer, and more efficient workspace. Here is a general guide on how to do it:
Step 1: Install a Local Server Software
Firstly, you will need a local server software on your computer. There are several of these available such as XAMPP, WampServer, MAMP (for MAC users) and Local by Flywheel. You can easily download and install any of these; they provide an environment for the WordPress software to run on your local machine.
Step 2: Install WordPress
Next, you’ll need to download WordPress from the official WordPress.org site. Then follow the instructions to set it up on your local server.
Step 3: Setup Your Local WordPress Site
Start your local server application then create a new database for your local WordPress site. You will then initiate a WordPress installation.
Step 4: Develop Your Website
Now that you have WordPress running locally, you can start creating pages, designing your theme, and adding functionality via plugins and widgets, just as you would on a live WordPress site.Remember, local development is not just isolated to WordPress. You can also develop custom software, web applications, or engage in full stack development all locally. However, if the process seems overwhelming or you lack the technical expertise, perhaps you might want to consider outsourcing this task to an experienced team.
