In this tutorial, I'll show you how to install WordPress on a computer running WAMP Server. WAMP server is a Windows web development environment that lets you create web apps and manage your databases using tools like…

  • Apache2
  • PHP
  • And My SQL

Using it allows you to run WordPress on your computer so you can make updates and changes offline before making changes live on the internet.

Here's what we'll cover:

1. How to create your website's SQL database
2. How to install WordPress from scratch on your WampServer
3. Launch WordPress so you can start building and editing your site.

I successfully went through both of your tutorials on setting up WAMP and getting the database and my first WP installation on. Everything is go! I have been in the back office of the installation! I will have a duplicate of the site I now have online but all of my work will now be done offline. When I am ready to update anything, I can now do that. I won't have anymore connection problems trying to work on my campaigns. I will create a database for every installation I put on there. That will be the three most important campaigns I have, WA, of course, being one of them.

This is the next best thing since Google Drive!

Very good tutorials! I went through them with no problems.

I've been out of town. Sorry I didn't get this right away.

It's been six years since I used WAMP and only marginal at best (just able to get it to work) since I have been in this tutorial. I really wish I could help you but I'd have to go through this tutorial again myself.

I just checked on the person who wrote this tutorial and she is no longer here.

Just a quick heads up here, you can go to YouTube or look through the Internet for tutorials on WAMP. I found this video right off the bat. Don't know how good it is but I hope I was of some assistance to you here.

WAMP was popular amongst the members here for a short time back in the early 2010s and I don't see any activity with this these days on here.

Thanks, this is great information. I have built websites on my local drive using HTML but I never realized it is so easy to create a WordPress site. I can't wait to try it out.

I Googled it and found out that it's the Microsoft Visual C++ 2010 Redistributable Package. It's required to run applications developed with Visual C++ on a computer that does not have Visual C++ 2010 installed. You can download the dll from the Microsoft site and install it on your computer. You'll find it here: http://bit.ly/Q7yqNW

You'll just need to pick the one that is compatible with your operating system. My guess is that you'll need either the first or the second one in the list. The first one is the 64bit version and the second one is the 32 bit version. Hope this helps!
