How to Install WordPress on Localhost

To install WordPress on your localhost, you need to create a database first. Choose the database name and specify the username and password. Once this is done, you can access the site by typing the URL localhost/wordpress in your web browser. Afterward, you can configure the site settings and publish your website. Alternatively, you can install WordPress using an existing server. In both cases, you will need to create a database before you can use WordPress.

You can install WordPress on localhost using two methods. You can either use the credentials you created when you first installed the site on your localhost or use the XAMPP application. If you prefer to install WordPress on your localhost without XAMPP, you can also use Bitnami. Although Bitnami doesn’t support the latest version of WordPress, it’s sufficient for basic configuration and experimentation. Similarly, installing WordPress on localhost will be much faster if you use the same server as your online store.

To install WordPress on your localhost, go to the file manager of your cPanel dashboard. Click on “File Manager” to view your website’s configuration folders. Make sure you have “wp-content” as the website’s root folder. Once you’ve found the folder, rename it to “wpitems” and compress the files into it. Once you’ve completed all the installation, you can test your new website by visiting localhost/wordpress and clicking “Install”.
