How to install wordpress locally

Description:

 
Using wordpress locally on your computer has many advantages. You can safely try any new updates, themes or plugins without breaking your website. We'll use wampserver which will install a web server - Apache - and a database - MySql + phpMyAdmin

Download and install Wampserver. The default install location is c:\wamp and the root directory of the web server is - c:\wamp\www - the local machine address - http://localhost  
Note - When wampserver is starting and you have Skype running, the web server will not start. This Skype option must be unchecked.
Download wordpress - Wordpress. Unpack it in a sub-folder of the web server's one( for instance c:\wamp\www\wordpress)  
Let's create a new database for wordpress. Open phpMyAdmin - accessible through left-clicking the wampserver icon in the system tray.
Click Databases, enter a name for the wordpress database and click Create
Go to http://localhost/wordpress to start the installation process  
Click Create a Configuration File and enter the database data
Enter a title for the blog and create an admin profile
You should be good to go - the admin panel is at

http://localhost/wordpress/wp-admin
