Before you can write and test your Wordpress locally, there’s one thing you’ll need – a server.When I first realised that life would be much easier once I could test my site locally I started hunting for what I needed and how much it would cost.

Guess what I came across a FREE solution.


This allows you to test your Wordpress Site on your own computer. Over a million people have downloaded this software. It installs everything you need, if you have a Windows PC (Win9x/Me/NT/2000/XP).
