Installing WordPress on your computer gives you a perfect testing ground for experimentation, theme development, plugin testing, and website development. You can grow your WordPress skills—or tweak your own custom site—without showcasing your work on the web. This course walks through the process of installing and configuring WordPress locally on a Mac using MAMP—the open-source server/database/scripting language combo that sets the stage for more serious WordPress development. 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.

Topics include:

  • Configuring MAMP and WordPress to work together
  • The MAMP and WordPress workflow
  • Accessing and modifying WordPress files
  • Setting up multiple WordPress sites with MAMP
  • Using cloud sync with Dropbox
  • Configuring and using MAMP PRO
