As you might already know you need a web host to be able to install WordPress. In this tutorial however, we’ll learn how to install WordPress locally. Having a local installation of WordPress allows us to quickly test any plugin or theme without having to worry if it’ll work on your live site or not. It is also a great way of working on your theme development while you’re on the road, as you won’t be needing an Internet connection.
Before we begin installing Worpress on our computer, make sure that you already have a local web server set up.
We have created a video tutorial for you guys to follow, so you can setup a local server environment for either PC, Mac, or Linux.
