Testing WordPress Locally Series 3

In this series, I will cover how to setup WordPress locally so that you can develop locally before pushing your blog/website on the cloud. You might also want to setup WordPress locally if you are planning to develop plugins or themes, I will be covering the following aspects

The Series

  1. Installing a Web Server (Apache)
  2. Installing PHP
  3. Installing MySQL
  4. Installing phpMyAdmin
  5. Installing WordPress

You can always use existing packages such as XAMPP to take care of installing an Apache Web Server along with MySQL, PHP and PERL. However, I will outline how you can install each component separately.

Update : 19 Dec 2013 : Sharad pointed out that you can also use bitnami app stack.
