To run WordPress locally, you need to set up a local server environment on your computer. This can be done using software like WAMP or MAMP, which allows you to run WordPress on your local computer. After installing and setting up the local server environment, you can install WordPress on it by following these steps:
Download the WordPress installation files from wordpress.org and save them to your computer.
Extract the installation files and move them to the appropriate directory on your local server. This is usually the htdocs or www folder.
Open a web browser and navigate to http://localhost/wp-admin/install.php to start the WordPress installation process.
Follow the on-screen instructions to complete the installation process, including setting up a database and creating a username and password for your WordPress administrator account.
Once the installation is complete, you can access your local WordPress site by navigating to http://localhost in your web browser. You can then log in to the WordPress admin using the username and password you created during the installation process. This allows you to manage your local WordPress site and start creating content. If you have problems installing it, we recommend using the Localwp app for macOS or Windows .
