Installing WordPress it very easy, you don’t have to be a web designer or a programmer, all what you need it to follow the process below.

Before doing into that, you will need the following software {PHP, MySQL, Apache} for Window and Mac operating system.

For Window operating system, you can get the above software by downloading one of the following software below;

1. Xampp.

Click http://www.apachefriends.org/download to download.

2. Wamp.

Click www.wampserver.com/en/ to download.

For Mac operating system, you can get the above software by downloading Wamp. You can visit 
www.wampserver.com/en/  to get it.

Once you download the software, you are good to go. Just follow the process.

I will be using xampp for this tutorial.

  • Open your xampp app, Once you open it this is what you will see.
  • Start The Apache And MySQL button.
  • Goto your browser and enter “localhost/phpmyadmin”
  • Create a database with any name of your choice.
  • Then click on create.

 After that, extract the file labelled “wordpress” into “C:\xampp\htdocs”.

After that, open the folder “wordpress” and navigate to wp-cofig-sample.php.

  • Open the file with any text editor {I preferred Notepad}. Search for the Database, Username, password and update them with any name of your choice.

Then, save the file and rename it as “wp-config.php”

The page will redirect you to the login page. Enter the username and password you used when editing the wp-config.php file.

  • You are welcome to WordPress.
