At the current time, there are more than 25% of total websites are hosted or operated on WordPress. Even moneyforwallet.com is also hosted on WordPress. I already published many articles on how to make money online.
People install WordPress on localhost, to test the website before putting it live to users.
In this article, you will get to know how to Localhost WordPress login and how to install WordPress on Localhost.
So let’s begin.
Install WordPress On Localhost
To install WP on localhost you need to use any of the following software WAMP, MAMP, LAMP, or XAMPP.
I suggest using XAMPP because it is open-source and free for all operating devices.
First, you have to download XAMPP from here. Visit the XAMPP website and go to the download page. And download their software for your device.
Make sure to choose MySQL and phpMyAdmin components while installing it.
Now it’s time to create a database
- Go to the folder where you installed XAMPP.
- An open folder named htdocs.
- Create a new folder with any_name.
- Upload the WordPress file to your new folder and extract it.
- You can access your site using http://localhost/any_name.
- Go to localhost/phpmyadmin in your browser.
- Choose your database
Now Install WordPress
- Open browser
- Go to https://localhost/Any_Name
- WordPress setup wizard page will occur
- Choose your language
- Enter details like database name, username, password, and Database host.
- Click on save and now you can see your website is live with wordpress.
Note:- Make sure to keep your password safe and strong. Adding WordPress on localhost is very simple and easy you don’t need to worry about anything. If you are trying but facing any problem then you can contact us we will try to help you out.
Reset WordPress Admin Password on Localhost
We are going to phpMyAdmin.
First, let’s visit phpMyAdmin here https://localhost/phpmyadmin/ and log in using your ID and password. Now choose your WordPress database.
And there you will find a list of tables double click n WP_USER. Next page you will find all users with their respective names, email, password, and any other detail.
Find admin username, click on the Edit button next to your username. Your editable form will be open, you have to enter your new password under USER_PASS. Do not touch the Function column.
Now click on the “Go” button in order to save or update your details.
