    Hi, I just installed WordPress to give it a try but I will be testing and modifying. I have it set up on my hosts server but if I want to have a local set up here on my pc do i have to install the mysql database and wordpress on apache and have php running? Is this a pain to do? i have apache and php set up and can run test sites but wokring mysql in sounds difficult. What do you guys suggest?

    Podz highly recommends Xampp.

    Is this what I would use if i dont have anything on my pc yet? I have apache and php running but these instructions talk about backing up a database. What if I dont have a database yet?
