Step #1  Download WAMP Server

As I said earlier WordPress needs a web server (which could be anyone, for e.g. I have used WAMP software  for installing WordPress) to work on so first you need to download and install a software called WAMP (which has prebuilt  localhost server) on your machine.

–>WAMP stands for Windows Apache MySQL and PHP.


Simply open any one of your browsers and download WAMP software on your system.


This will provide a platform to install WordPress easily.

Remember one thing, while installing WAMP, no other servers should be in active mode otherwise it will conflict installation of WAMP.

Step #2  Install WAMP Server

After downloading WAMP server, just double click on its icon to run and install it in one of your directories (By default it gets installed on Local disk C).

Step #3  Activating WAMP Server

Remember, every time you turn on your machine, first you will need to activate WAMP server simply by double clicking on its icon.

After activating it that you will see a green “W” mark (which looks red by default) on your task-bar.

Step #4  Download WordPress Zip

Now open your browser. Go to and easily download the latest version of WordPress.


Step #5  Open Directory Where You Have Install WAMP

Open your directory where you have installed WAMP server and perform the following steps.

Directory (Local disk C, by default wamp is installed in this directory) –> wamp –> www–> copy the zip folder of WordPress here and do right click on it and select “extract here”.

Now make a copy of the folder and rename it, here for e.g., it is renamed as “wordpress1”.

Making a multiple copy of WordPress and renaming will save your time for downloading the WordPress again (In case if you need the download file again)..


Step #6  Open Your Browser Window

Open your web browser window and type the following on your address bar “localhost/phpmyadmin/” and press enter.

Following  page shown in figure will display on your screen:
