How to Wordpress on Local Computer?
WordPress on Local Computer?
are you into a WordPress Development? or want to know an easy way to install WordPress on local Computer in a super easy way?. Today I am going to share a tutorial about this.
There are other easy methods for installing WordPress on Local Computer and start to edit or make a website. But I thought this is the best one clicks and go type method I ever found on the Internet.
So, let’s get started!
What is Localhost?
Localhost refers to computer networking that hostname “this computer”.
Why we need Localhost?
We need to run webpages so localhost uses to show webpages on our local computer machine. If you are a programmer and you want to display a webpage on your computer you can use localhost.
Most people use WAMP, XAMPP or MAMP today I am going to tell you the easiest way.
First of all, you need to search on Google typing “Local by Flywheel” or download from here https://localbyflywheel.com/, after opening it click on Download button like other software.
It takes a couple of mins to download the latest version is around 600MB. Thus, you need to have that much space on your Personal Computer. After finishing Download, install it like other software.
After installing choose your options whether mac or windows. I have chosen windows and it’s the same for the mac too, as a result, It is cross-platform. After that, fill your data such as name email address and so on. Now click on Get It Now green button at the end.
Now it takes more time to set up everything like virtual box and host machine and setup environment, It can take up more time depends on your Internet Speed. I have a moderate Internet speed so it took less than 30 mins. It can vary for you.
You can see the simple interface of that when you are opening it for the first time, now click on the Create A New site button and go and give a name of your site name on the box. After that click on the continue button. You can see the details below but, I prefer to leave as it is and click on the continue.
And, you can see two buttons preferred and custom, you can leave as a preferred but I have chosen custom and choose an apache server. Give an admin id password for WordPress admin panel or dashboard, and give an email address of yours or leave as that default email. It will download needy things.
Site is ready, you can visit the login button and start to dig on the Dashboard of the WordPress admin panel. See, it’s super easy to install and work on your site, development, modification and whatever you like to do.
And the best part is that you can share your link to show your work to the client or friends to get the feedback no need to upload it to any server, LocalByWheel has provided that service too. Such an amazing all in one tool, I have ever used. I highly recommend to download it and test it, work on it, share it with your friends.
