After you confirm the website is good to go live, only can plan to get a domain or web hosting, this can avoid a lot of unpredictable issue. So, in this article, i’ll show you the exact step by step to build your WordPress website on your computer.
Download WAMP Offline Website Hosting
To host your website on your computer, we need to install a software called “Wamp“.
Check your computer either is x64 or x32, if 64-bit operating system then download the left one, else download the right one.
Install WAMP on your Computer
Once you have successfully download wamp, now install the software as usual. Don’t worry, just keep clicking Next until it finish. Simply and easy.
Once you have successfully install wamp in your computer you will see the icon in bottom right will be green color.
Now, open your browser (I suggest you use Crytotab because you can earn some money while the browser is on), and go to “localhost”. You will see something like the screenshot below, that mean your local hosting is totally working.
Install WordPress Website
To install WordPress, simple move your wordpress folder to wamp www folder.
If you don’t have wordpress, simply go to wordpress.org to download the latest version zip file. Unzip the file you will see a wordpress folder.
In my case, i install wamp in my Disk C, so the location will be
Disk C » wamp64 » www. I rename the wordpress folder to rentroom, because it’s easier for me to see. It’s doesn’t matter to make change the folder name.
Create a Database
Now, go back to browser “localhost”, at the bottom left corner, you will see 【phpmyadmin】, click on it.
To login, the default ID is
root, PW not required, so just leave the password empty.
Once you login, at the top menu, click on 【Database】, and enter whatever name you like. Since the folder already name it as rentroom, so database i also call it as rentroom, easy for me to recall. Click on Create and that all for this part.
The last thing we have to do is to modify the wp-config file. In my case, we can find this file on
Disk C » wamp64 » www » rentroom. If you wp-config-sample or whatever, just rename it to wp-config.php.
Open to edit, remember on the above step we have create a database called rentroom? Change the DB_NAME to the database
rentroom, DB_USER default is
root, DB_PASSWORD leave it blank, DB_HOST
Once you have modify the database, save.
