Install WordPress on a Laptop or Desktop Computer
If you’re interested in learning about WordPress, but don’t have a website, this is the perfect solution.
This short and easy to follow training shows you the steps to follow to get a WordPress site running on your computer. This uses the free software available from XAMPP.
The first step covers installing a web server that can be used to run WordPress. The second step then covers installing WordPress itself.
Once set up, you can use your WordPress just like a website and learn how it works without paying for web hosting. You can install plugins and themes just the same as if the WordPress site was online
Note: This is not an alternative to buying web hosting. Only you will be able to view your WordPress on the computer that you install it on. It will not be available online to others.
