How to install xampp server to support Wordpress as a Local server?

I am not an expert on the most popular Content management Software (CMS) WordPress but trying to learn it. If you eager to learn something on WP just keep touch with my blog Ledbd Wordpress Tips. Toady I will share one of my experience when I started first time customizing something inside wordperss.



I was hardly looking the way how to install wordpress on the local host server. From the very beginning I was stated to use WAMP (Windows Apache MySQL PHP) as a local server and that was very older version. You easily could understand the wamp will work only for windows but you could collect for MAMP for Mac OS, Lamp for Limux. At this moment it is running WampServer 2.0i which got released on July 11 2009 even you will get the updated version serially. That time I could not work with the older version of WAMP.



Later I understood that I could find more information and could find out xampp which was also an older version from its server. It also had problems too. But when I got 1.6.7 version in my hand I could work very comfortably.



Installation of the free server is very easy. You will not face in pressure or more technical knowledge. But if you use Windows service pack 2 then it could appear a window which will show a message asking Block or unblock. You just have to click on unblock. Later you will do as it wants.

Recently, I have read a bangle blog, where the users are asking information for uploading there files on the server. Well, this is not easy to anyone because it needs some knowledge on server maintains. But very easy for them who like to read the instruction inside the web-server or control panel. Yes, you are eagerly waiting to know the site of the free domain hosting website. It is noting but Freehostia is perhaps one the of the popular free web hosting website.


Inside the control panel, you will get the visual information and video tutorials that could help you to solve the problems easily.
