install it on the same path of MAMP programe

 MAMP => htdocs

The name of this WordPress folder will be included in the URL of your local WordPress install (i.e. localhost/wordpress). You can rename the folder (and consequently the URL) to anything that works for you. For instance, I renamed this folder to imc.



Install WordPress Locally on your Windows PC

The last step is to install WordPress on your local server. Type the URL of your local WordPress site into your browser’s address bar. I used the localhost/imc URL,  If you haven’t renamed your WordPress folder, type in localhost/wordpress.

You will then need to fill in some information about the new database you have created. You will need to define…

  • Database Name – This is the name you chose when setting up the new database for your test site in phpMyAdmin. For instance, I used imc as database name in our example.
  • Database Username and Password – Both the username and password are root. This info can be found on the MAMP installation page in the MySQL section (as discussed earlier).
  • Database Host – This is localhost. Again, this info can be found on the MAMP installation page.

then click on Run installation 


You will need to provide some details about your test site. These settings can be changed later on if needed, so don’t worry too much about your site title, username, and other details at this stage. Then click on Install WordPress.


As you can see, installing WordPress on a local web server is a relatively straightforward process. By following  steps, you can quickly and easily install MAMP, set up a database for your test site, and download and install WordPress. Then, you can start to design your new website, test existing sites, or just have fun creating with WordPress. Enjoy!
