Install WordPress locally via the on-screen installer
- When you visit your demo site, you should see the normal WordPress installer. Remember, your test site is just http://localhost/demosite which we created in step 3.
- The only step where this process will differ from a normal install is the database details. When you get to the database details, enter them like this:
Database Name = Name of the database you created in PHPMyAdmin (Created in Step 4)
Username = “root”
Password = leave blank
- Then finish the rest of the WordPress install process like normal.
- Once you complete the process, you should see your brand new WordPress install running perfectly on your local host.
I hope it helps you, do let me know if you’re stuck at any point or face any issues while Installing XAMPP and WordPress.
