How to install WordPress on your local machine? Part two
In this post, I will continue to explain how to install WordPress on your local machine which is the second part of How to install WordPress on your local machine? Part one post which you can find here. In part one we downloaded WordPress and installed Wamp Server. As you noticed in the last post, Wamp Server is very important in order to have WordPress installed on your local machine.
At the end of this post we will have a clean install of a WordPress site and after that, you can develop your own website locally. So let’s get started. First, go into your Wamp folder than into your Portfolio folder. Make a copy of the wp-config-sample.php than rename that file to wp-config.php. This is very important as in this file we will add our database options. Change the second parameter on every line. Portfolio is the database name, root is the username in phpmyadmin, leave the second parameter after the password blank as we didn’t set any password for the database and the last line is your localhost which you should not change.

When you’re done, open your browser in the url bar and type localhost/portfolio and press enter. After this, you should see the first part of the installation where you can select the language.

Setup step 4
When you finished the installation you need to log in. When you’re done, you should have a clean WordPress installation.
If you followed all the steps than you should have a clean WordPress installation on your local machine. Once again it is important to have a local server installed as well before you install WordPress. If the installation process is not clear for you than, you can try to contact me or to search on the net. Now you can start developing awesome WordPress sites! 🙂
