Tom Johnson gives a brief introduction to and instructions for getting started with WampServer for Windows to run WordPress on your own computer. Running WordPress locally allows you to test setups, themes, plugins, and more without the need of an Internet connection or trouble of setting up a dedicated test installation.

This is one of the best instructional videos, Tom. BIG THANK YOU and congrats on the format, simplicity, completeness, technical style and your presentation style.
If my search for moving my newly designed local blog to my live site comes up authored by you comes up empty…please, PLEASE create one. I’ve read instructions and viewed other videos but they’ve always left me scratching my head and bumbling through a few trial and error attempts before I stumbled into getting it right.
You are my new WordPress TV hero!

You may wish to try WordPress Portable, a portable WAMP stack with WordPress already preinstalled.

I followed this instructional video and it worked a treat. My only problem was finding how to crank up the new installation the next day!
Eventually I worked out that I had to click on the Wampserver program icon in Start/programs, and then the little icon appeared in the task bar, which eventually led me to my new database’s name and go-time.
I should have looked at the video again, because you cover this point at 6.26 onwards. More speed; less haste!

Thankyou, thankyou and thanks once again!
I’ve struggled for YEARS to set up a server on my computer all to no avail but I set it up as I watched this video and now I’ve already installed wordpress and can test my themes and widgets.
One of the best instructional videos I’ve seen.
Thanks from the UK.

This is what I needed. I am going to start changing my website up every now and then and now I can test without having to make changes live.

Excellent Tutorial. Very clear, concise and well paced instructional video. overed all the necessary info. One suggestion I would make is to use a tool that allows you to zoom in to a specific part of the screen to enlarge it for easier reading. Not a major issue though.
Very helpful. Thanks.

Thanks for the fantastic tutorial. It was very easy to follow. I’ve never used WAMP before but I am a big WP fan and now I can build a site to propose to my boss to replace our AWFUL “cushy cms” site.
