Start the modules and test your server

  • To install XAMPP and WordPress properly, you’ll need to run two modules:
    • Apache
    • MySQL
  • You can start both modules from the XAMPP control panel.

  • And now you should be able to test that your local server is working by going to http://localhost/ in your web browser of choice.

  • If all went well, you now have a functioning XAMPP server on your Windows PC!
  • Now it’s time to Install WordPress into XAMPP. So here’s how to get a WordPress site up and running on XAMPP.
