Wordpress is the best content management system and many bloggers are dreaming to make a blogs in the Wordpress but to create a Wordpress blog you have to buy web host to host your Wordpress and posts and its little bit costly so before taking any risk it would be grate to learn Wordpress before buying the web space for the blog. we can also learn Wordpress by creating free blog but there are many limitations in the Wordpress free blog like you can’t install custom themes, you can install plug-in, you cant customize the theme and there are many more limitations in the Wordpress free blog ! so it would be grate to install the wordpress in local host. ;)
#ResourcesTo install the wordpress we just need two things 1st server you can download any server but i recommend xampp server and the 2nd wordpress it self !
1. Download xampp server
Let’s start the tutorial :-1. Install the xampp and make sure you have started 3 services (apache, mysql, filezilla).

4. Now click on create and the new database has been created and now again go to the database and click on privileges and click on add a new user and then fill the details like username, password and in host you have to select local then in the global privileges click on check all and then click on GO.
