Installing WordPress locally in your computer – Part 2

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.

Creating a Database for WordPress

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

Create Database for WordPress

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.

I’d really appreciate if you help me keep creating more content like this.

Please add your donation, any amount will be helpful. Currently I am creating daily articles from common questions in Facebook groups or from twitter user support requests. Thanks in advance!
