First of all, you need to search on Google typing “Local by Flywheel” or download from here ,after opening it, click on Download button like other software.
It takes a couple of minute to download the latest version is around 600 MB. 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 minute. 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 “Create A New site” button and go and give a name of your site name on the box. After doing that, click on continue button. You can see the details below but, I prefer to leave as it is and click on continue button.
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. Enjoy with Flywheel WordPress.
