Hey Shivani. Plenty of detailed guides on Google and Youtube for a local WordPressi nstallation. Follow any of the top links, and you'll have a WP installation in no time.

To install WordPress on localhost, you need to follow these steps:
  • Download and install XAMPP on your computer. XAMPP is a software that allows you to create a local server environment for WordPress.
  • Download WordPress from wordpress.org and extract it to a folder inside the htdocs folder of XAMPP. For example, if you name your folder “blog”, then your WordPress files will be in C:\xampp\htdocs\blog
  • Create a database for WordPress using phpMyAdmin. You can access phpMyAdmin by typing localhost/phpmyadmin in your browser. Click on “New” and enter a database name, such as “blog_db”. Then click on “Create”.
  • Run the WordPress installation script by typing localhost/blog (or whatever you named your folder) in your browser. You will see a screen where you need to select your language and click on “Continue”.
  • Enter your site title, username, password, email address and click on “Install WordPress”. You will see a success message when WordPress is installed.
  • Log in to your WordPress dashboard by typing localhost/blog/wp-admin (or whatever you named your folder) in your browser. You can now start creating your website.
Do you have any questions about these steps? if yes, please let me know.
