Installing WordPress on your computer gives you a perfect testing ground for experimentation, theme development, plugin testing, and website development. This course walks through the process of installing and configuring WordPress locally on your Mac using MAMP—the open-source server/database/scripting language combo that sets the stage for more serious WordPress development. Instructor Morten Rand-Hendriksen covers configuration options to help you get started in WordPress quickly. Plus, he shows how to set up your WordPress development environment with MAMP PRO—the professional, commercial version of the framework—and explains why you might want to make the switch from MAMP to MAMP PRO.
