But please tell whats the difference. I had develop some web pages using html/php for clinic website.
WordPress is installed on Server. It is somewhat 'intelligent'. HTML websites are static websites. There is actually no web page (this page) on the server :
That data is stored in MySQL database unlike your HTML website. Basically there is no real folder named :
and now i had wordpress at c:\wamp\www\wordpress\*.*
Normal. Technically it is in www\wordpress\ folder.
when i start wamp, it will appear green at task bar and open up localhost from there.That display the page server confg./tools/projects/aliases
It should show default WAMP page. There is some wrong configuration or other software is creating conflict. Put the clinic site on a subfolder suppose named clinic under www. So under www there will be two folders :
is this the website i designed by default using wordpress or else.
WordPress plus other softwares and WordPress Plugins including bbPress.
# Basic thing which I have understood, you can not install WordPress on localhost / your own computer. Save the clinic folder contents and uninstall all whatever related to localhost installation, if there is Dreamweaver (or anything that you use to create PHP/ HTML webpages), uninstall that too. Restart and follow any method of below.
Here are various ways for your step by step guides (do not apply all together), Copy Paste the URLs on browser :
Old way, using XAMPP :
Newer way using AMPPS :
Smart Linux way on Windows PC using WAMP :
There are hundreds of step by step guided tuts on Internet published on various blogs. Also check YouTube videos. I can not give more non hyperlinked url of my own blog on reply, people will kick me out!
We are basically emulating a Linux server on Windows PC to run WordPress on our computer. Thats why its a bit complicated. You can install WordPress on a subfolder or subdomain on your Linux server to test. That is more easy.
Do not plan to transfer your local WordPress to Server, it is quite complicated for you.
