By | January 15, 2020


Hi Guys, I’m Subhang from Websitelearners.com Today, I’ll be showing you how you can install WordPress, Locally on your computer Now, Why would you want to Install WordPress locally? Normally, if want to build
a wordpress site, you would need to buy domain and
hosting, and then launch your live website But if you don’t want to
launch a website yet, and just want to try and test wordpress, you can do that by watching
this video Okay! So, when you install
wordpress locally all your website’s files will be
stored on your computer, and this means only you will be able to access your website Now, this is a great way for you to
learn making your website for free of cost And, once you’ve build your wordpress
site locally, you can then move it to a live website I’ll show you, how you can
do that at the later part of this video So keep watching And now, let’s install
wordpress locally! Okay! It is going to be
totally free and we’re going to do
it in just 2 simple steps! First, we’re going to download a software called ‘bitnami wordpress’ Now, this is the software which
is going to allow us to run wordpress on our computer So to download it, let’s go to our browser And, then search for
‘bitnami wordpress’ and press enter Now, click the first link And then download
bitnami, by clicking here And clicking this link Okay! So the bitnami
software is downloaded! Now, let’s go to step 2, which is
to install this software So let’s open the
file we’ve downloaded And, click ‘Ok’ Now keep clicking ‘next’ till you reach this page Okay! So this is the page,
where we need to enter the login details of our
local wordpress site So enter your name email address and then the username and the password for wordpress make sure you remember these
details as you’ll be needing this to login into your local
wordpress site Once you’re done, keep clicking next And wordpress
will be installed Now let’s click finish! And it will take
you to this page So, wordpress is now
installed on our computer Now to access your site, you
just have to click ‘access wordpress’ So let’s click that And as you can see, our
wordpress site is now running on our PC! Okay! You can access your
site anytime by going to “localhost/wordpress”
on your browser Now if you want to login
to wordpress, you just add “/login” And, it will take you to the
login page of wordpress You can now login, by
entering the details that you gave during
the installation So, once you’ve logged in, you can
start building your website So this is how you can Install wordpress locally on your PC and start building your website Once you’ve completed
building your website you can then move it to a live website, by watching this
video, here! We show you how you can
move from local host to web host So that’s it! Guys If you liked this video,

    Hi,

    I would like to purchase a theme for my website. Currently, i'm building offline (with Bitnami) and i'm curious if the theme will export as well?

    Hopefully, you don't need to buy a new license for the online version of your website.

    Hi Subhang, Thank you for this video. I have found this very helpful. I would like to ask you a couple of questions if I may.
    1/ Can you develop more than one website locally at the same time?
    2/ If I already have a Domain Name, what process would you suggest to install WordPress on that site? I looked at your video on Moving WordPress from Local Server to Live Website, and learnt a lot from that.
    I certainly would appreciate any help you could give and hopefully many others will as well.
