1.Download The latest version of WordPress from The Official WordPress Site.
2.Download the Wamp Server and Install it.It is recommended to Install It in the Default path “ C:Wamp”
Configuring the Wamp Server
Start the Wamp server and Click on the Wamp Icon on System tray.Then Click On “Start all Services”
Creating the database
Click on the System tray Icon and Click On “phpMyadmin”.A Page Will open in your Browser.(If you are Not familiar with the Php My Admin Interface Don’t panic!).Just Enter a database name in Create New database and Hit on Create.The database name can be anything ( Here i am Using “Test” as the database name)
Configuring The database
Okay ! Now that You have successfully created the database Open “SQLitemanager” by clicking the System tray Icon.This Will open the SQLite page in your Browser
Upload the database :In The SQLite page you need to upload the database that You just Created In phpMyadmin.Enter the name of the database (in this case its “Test”)and Click on” Browse “.
Now navigate to “C:wampbinmysqlmysql5.0.51bdata” where you will find the Folder of the database you Created earlier.Open that Folder and select the “db.opt” File. Check the Checkbox “Upload database” and Hit on “Save “.
If everything goes well then you will see your database in the Left Column.If you don’t see the database in the Left column then Something went wrong.Start it all over.
Configuring and Installing WordPress
1.Next Navigate to “C:wampwww” and Create a Folder.Name it “Test”.
2.Copy all the WordPress Files in that Directory
3.Fill in the database details :Now open wp-config-sample.php in any Text editor like Notepad .
In DB_NAME you will find ‘putyourdbnamehere’.Replace it with the database name that you created earlier.(in this case its “test”).
In DB_USER replace “usernamehere” with “root”.
In DB_PASSWORD delete ‘yourpasswordhere’.Leave it blank.
Having done that save that file.Rename it to “wp-config.php”.
