This has been a superb tutorial, and I thought it was the answer to building sites locally, testing plug-ins etc. But having used the process on 2 or 3 different sites, I now cannot get logged into any of them.
Over a week now, tried lots of solutions, no luck. Any suggestions anyone? This was so clear and concise. Thanks so much. IKEA have a lot to learn!! Thank you for your time and efforts putting this out there! Thanks for taking the time to write this guide, it was very helpful. Thank you so much for sharing this. I followed it step by step and it was so easy. You have a talent in writing easy to follow instructions.
Thanks again. Great, easy. Now how can I access the install from other computers on my network. I want to set up a home intranet. I cannot thank you enough for this tutorial. Absolutely brilliant — clear and easy to follow and it worked. I am trying to setup my own website. Not a web developer. I often find that tutorials include terms or words that are not familiar to a layperson, which is frustrating as I know that I could do it if I understood what they were referring to.
How to Create a Local WordPress Site Using XAMPP
Many, many thanks. Then when I go to localhost: But when I try to access wp-admin going to localhost: If I try to retrieve a lost password, it says my email address is invalid too. And not matter how many times I uninstall and reinstall everything from the beginning, I get the same result. Any ideas? Love it! To get my head around WordPress I really wanted to work on my sites independently on my computer. Thank you for making it so easy. What a great step-by-step tutorial. I always wanted to install locally, since my web hosting provider corrupted all my site files and I had to jump through hoops to get everything back up and running.
A beautiful, complete step by step. No chance in hell to get to the end of the process without your detailed explanations. I now have the WP dashboard in front of me and I am really so pleased.
How to Use XAMPP to Set Up a Local WordPress Site (In 3 Steps)
Thanks for taking the time to post this brilliant tutorial. Really appreciate all the effort you took to have the step-by-step install guide on your site. It was easy to follow and with success! Thanks again!! Thanks for the amazing step-by-step guide.. I just have one question: How do I add my already existing WP-page now?
When I set up WP it asked me to make a username and pw, there was no option to fill in an existing one.. Any advice? Much appreciated! Followed step for step and it worked amazingly thank you so much! Worked perfectly. My question now is: How do I bring over an existing WordPress site so I can work with it offline? Just export the database from your live site and import it to your local site.
Excellent instructions, worked perfectly!
Any chance of an equally clear and comprehensive tutorial for loading the finished site onto online server? Your phpMyAdmin should work. This was a truly great tutorial. From start to finish. I slavishly and delightedly followed your examples… I too am now a skillcrusher. Perfect step by step instructions. That was a really good post.
What is MAMP?
It has saved me from a lot of pain. Keep up the good work. I have been trying to do this for months and I just finally got it. Thank you so much for this — I hope no one else has a problem going through this. Thank you for making it available! Thanks so much: Thank you very much!
You are a genius! I really like the way you managed to explain everything so clear with much attention to details. Please disregard. Great tutorial! Thanks for posting this, I just followed it and have set up locally on my Macbook Pro. Instructions not updated for latest MAMP but figured it out anyway! Now to create a site: Thanks Laurence, a great tutorial that works and was easy to follow — even for a dummy like me: Will you please help us?
I installed MAMP 4. Tried everything that was suggested by others in different forums.
