I can guide you through the process of installing WordPress on your localhost (your personal computer) step by step.
Step 1: Set Up a Local Development Environment
Before installing WordPress, you need a local server environment. We’ll use XAMPP as an example:
Download XAMPP: Go to the XAMPP download page and download the version suitable for your operating system (Windows/Mac/Linux).
Install XAMPP: Run the installer and follow the instructions. You can choose the default settings for most options.
- Start Apache and MySQL: Open XAMPP Control Panel and start both the Apache and MySQL modules.
