2.2 Installing WordPress Locally
Welcome to lesson #2 of this course, where you’ll learn how to install WordPress. You can work with WordPress on a live server, which means any changes you make are immediately visible on your website, or you can work locally and manually install WordPress on your system, which means that any changes you make are only visible on your computer. Doing this allows you to develop and test your project as much as you want before sending it to a live server.
In this lesson you’re going to learn how to work locally with WordPress and also what kind of software you need. I'll take you through the process and show you how to install WordPress on MAMP. Let’s begin.
