In order to start, you need to install and install the XAMPP application package. The Windows installer from Apache Friends is available for downloading. Run the previously loaded XAMPP installation program after the downloading is complete.
When you run anti-virus softwares, you may receive a message like this: You may also receive a User Account Control (UAC) command prompt, based on your Windows setup.

You do not need all installed software to install WordPress and XP. Now you can choose in which directory you want to install SAMPP. The next monitor will ask you to install Bitnami for XP. This is not necessary to install WordPress and XP, so simply deselect the checkbox:

Have you ever had WordPress manual installation, the remainder of the procedure should seem quite intimate. First of all you need to go to Wordpress.org and get the latest WordPress release. Under Windows, browse to the directory where you install it. Make a new directory for your test page in HiDocs.
As soon as you have created the directory, please unzip the WordPress. zipped document that you download from Wordpress.org: Next, you need to build a MySQL data base for your WordPress installation. Start your PPMyAdmin via the XAMPP-Control Panel: Type a name for your data base and click Build.

When you want to fool around with WordPress Multisite, it is also possible to set WordPress Multisite to work on your locale hosting.
However, instead of copying information, I will simply redirect you to Vishnu's contribution on how to setup WordPress Multisite on a locally hosted computer. Do you need to use XAMPP and WordPress for your stage? Whilst executing WordPress on your own computer is a great way to try and test WordPress, you shouldn't use it as an actual hosting site for a real-site.
This is because it has a different set of hard drives than your own site. Just because something works or doesn't work on your installation of WordPress does not mean that it will be the same on your webpage. Instead, using a domain or your host's own sub-domain or hosting services are much better ways to build a WordPress hosting site.
As soon as you have learned how to install XAMPP and WordPress for the first times, you can quickly create new test pages if needed. I use XAMPP installations as a free-lance author to check any number of topics and plug-ins. Here I probably have about 60 WordPress installations that run on XAMPP.
