How to SETUP WordPress in your Computer

If you are beginner and want to start practice on WordPress, so I personally recommend to install WordPress in Computer and work on localhost. There is no need to buy any hosting and domain or do not work on free hosting like 000webhost, free-Hostia etc. No doubt they are very good but when you go for paid hosting. In free hosting you may get problems like small space, small file upload size etc.

          In this blog I am going to teach you complete process, how to install WordPress and how to create Localhost on your web server. Follow all following steps:
