In Part 2 of the WordPress local installation, I’ll show you how to create a database required by the WordPress installer.
Go to http://localhost/dashboard/ in your computer. Select the phpMyAdmin option from the menu.
phpMyAdmin is a tool that allows you to manage the databases in your XAMPP development platform.
To create a new database that will be used by WordPress click on New
Write the name of the database as indicated below. I gave the database the name db_wp and clicked on Create.
The new database will appear on the left section.
And that’s it. We already have a Web Server and a database. We are ready to proceed with the WordPress installation in Part 3.
