How To Install Bitnami WordPress on XAMPP

Installing WordPress on XAMPP is an easy task with Bitnami. Even the index page of your XAMPP local server recommends using Bitnami to install the applications you’d need.

Done! Simple isn’t it? You can access your WordPress on https://127.0.0.1/wordpress/ and the dashboard at https://127.0.0.1/wordpress/wp-admin with the username and password which you’ve set earlier.

Once you’re in the dashboard, you might noticed there are WordPress Updates which is a good practice for you to patch and keep up to date. However, other than updating the core WordPress, I’ll choose to delete all plugins instead. This way, I’ll keep my WordPress clean and only setup those plugins which I need for a particular site development.

You’re now ready to learn/use/customize your newly created WordPress.

================

There might be times that you’d need several WordPress installations on the same XAMPP stack. By default, Bitnami WordPress module will be installed under F:\>xampp\apps\wordpress

To include more Bitnami WordPress installations, start Command Prompt and run :

bitnami-wordpress-4.1.1-0-module-windows-installer.exe –wordpress_instance_name wordpress1

commandprompt

There you have several instances of WordPress installations running on the same XAMPP stack.
