How to Install Wordpress On Your Localhost?

You can install Wordpress On your Own Computer (Localhost) before your site being live, And also if you are a developer you can test and check your themes, plugins which is safer environment away from live site.

Without talking anything, let's dive in.
Wordpress is PHP based Programming language that means you need to have a server to run.

In this tutorial we are going to use XAMPP to install server on your computer. (You can also use WAMP)

-Now Click on 'Databases' tab near the top-left and you will be prompted to create a new database. Here i have created database name as 'AMB'.
-After creating a database Download the Wordpress File from here. Unzip the Wordpress File and Copy it to the C:\Program Files\XAMPP\htdocs. (if you are using Mac, Unzip and copy the Wordpress file to Application\XAMPP\htdocs.)
