Description

In this course you will learn how to download and install the Xampp software needed to build WordPress websites offline on your home (localhost) computer. Once you have built a WordPress site you will learn how to download and install a WordPress plugin that will enable you to compress the local site, and then migrate it to an online hosting server. Occasionally with the plugin method you may run into WordPress migration problems with some host providers. This course will teach you a second method to migrate your WordPress site manually without using a plugin. This second method is a little more complex as it involves exporting and importing your databases, but it is a fail safe method that should work with all WordPress sites and hosting providers.

Who this course is for:
  • Anyone interested in becoming a WordPress web developer
  • People that build WordPress websites for customers
  • Anyone interested in exploring and experimenting with WordPress offline
  • People that wish to migrate a WordPress site from one domain to another
