2. Install WordPress

After setting up a local server, you need to download and install WordPress ( After downloading, extract the .zip file into the www directory for WAMP, htdocs for MAMP/XAMPP.

3. Set Up Database

Next step is to create a MySQL database for your WordPress install. This process may vary, but generally, you need to access your PHPMyAdmin from your local server dashboard, create a new database, and remember the database name.

4. Install WordPress on Local Server

Now launch the installation script by visiting your local development site (often this is http://localhost). The WordPress famous five-minute install will walk you through the steps necessary, including entering your database information.

5. Choose and Install a Theme
