WordPress setup

Running a Development Copy of WordPress

1. Install a local server environment: You can use software such as XAMPP, WAMP, or MAMP to set up a local server environment on your computer.
2. Download and install WordPress: You can download the latest version of WordPress from the official website and extract it to your local server environment.
3. Create a database: Create a new database in your local server environment to store your WordPress data.
4. Configure WordPress: Open your browser and navigate to the local installation of WordPress. Follow the setup wizard to configure your site and connect it to the database.
5. Install plugins and themes: You can install and test plugins and themes in your development environment without affecting your live site.
6. Make changes and test: You can now make changes to your WordPress site, such as customizing themes or adding functionality through plugins, and test them in your development environment.
7. Deploy changes to live site: Once you are satisfied with your changes, you can then deploy them to your live site by updating the files on your server or using a plugin such as WP Migrate DB.
It’s important to note that a development copy of WordPress should not be used for live production purposes and should only be used for testing and development.
