If you’ve ever manually installed WordPress, the rest of the process should feel pretty familiar. First, you need to go to and download the latest version of WordPress

Step 2 : Find The Main Folder

Then, in Windows, navigate to the folder where you installed XAMPP. For me, that’s C://xampp. It should be something similar for you. Then, in th at folder, find the htdocs


Step 3 : Create a Folder For WordPress

In htdocs, create a new folder for your test site. This folder name will become the sub-name used to access your site. For example, if you make the folder WordPress, you’ll access your site by going to http://localhost/wordpress.

Step 4: Extract The Downloaded File

Once you create the folder, extract the WordPress .zip file you downloaded from into This New Folder.

Step 5: Create a database for WordPress

you need to create a MySQL database for your WordPress install. To do that, launch PHPMyAdmin from your XAMPP control panel.

Go to A Browser http://localhost/phpmyadmin Creat  a Database Name wpress

Step 6: Install WordPress locally via the on-screen installer

The only step where this process will differ from a normal install is the database details. When you get to the database details, enter them like this:

  • Database Name =
     Name of the database you created in PHPMyAdmin
  • Username = “root”
  • Password = leave blank
