How To Install WordPress on Localhost (Server2Go)

Here’s the step-by-step procedure on how to install WordPress on local web server (created by Server2Go).

First, you’d need to download the latest version of WordPress at https://wordpress.org/download/ ie. wordpress-x.x.x.zip to your desktop.

Unzip it and you’ll have a folder/directory wordpress on your desktop. Copy this entire directory to the Server2Go directory (ie. in the flash drive).

Rename the htdocs directory to htdocs_old and wordpress to be the new htdocs. So now, your new htdocs directory structure will resumes that of WordPress :

wpfolder

Then, you can start to install WordPress by going to https://127.0.0.1:4001/ (or https://127.0.0.1:4001/wp-admin/setup-config.php) and follow through the installation steps :

Language : English (United States)

Database Name : wpdb

Username : wpdbuser

Password : password

Database Host : localhost

Table Prefix : wp_

Submit > Run the install

Site Title : Your WordPress Site Title

Username : admin

Password (twice) : password

Your E-mail : example@youremail.com

Privacy : Ticked (default)

There you go, your new WordPress is up! To log into your newly created WordPress’s Dashboard, go to https://127.0.0.1:4001/wp-admin and log in with the username and password which you’ve entered earlier.
