    siteurl and home values in the database table ‘wp-options’ plus any full urls you may have used. If you have not used any such urls (for images typically) then it’s just the first two values.

    It’s very doable 🙂

    From what I understand, in order to really “see” WordPress in action on your computer free of the connection with the Internet and web server, you have to have MySQL, Apache and PHP installed on your computer. There are a bunch of “quicke” (and I use that term loosely) programs and help files on the net that will help you install the M-A-P combination on your computer.

    Living on the road and traveling full-time, I understand this very well, but I haven’t taken this step yet. Once I’m set up with a fixed computer, I add the new posts via any and all Internet connections I can find when I can. But setting it up for the first time, I did it from a fixed internet connection because it just took a lot of time and I wanted all the urls (as podz mentioned) and bells and whistles to work online and not trust what I would get on my machine and then upload.

    It sped up the testing process, but didn’t change the development process.

    Luckily, WordPress is pretty easy to learn and use and the up time was amazingly fast, but that’s because I already had experience with HTML and CSS. I’m learning PHP and MySQL by the seat of my pants to get more customization as I go. But the inital stuff can have you up and running in a few hours to two days of dinking with it.

    People with broadband internet forget that there are a lot of us out there still hunting for an internet connection, in any shape and form. Beg, borrow, and steal…so to speak.
