Support » Installing WordPress » Downloading WordPress on Macbook pro- issues

  • I am trying to download WordPress to start my latest project, and every time I click on the link to download, it takes me to a page that makes no sense. It looks almost like a word document, covered in different coding… I don’t know much about computers or technology, but that really doesn’t seem right to me. I tried to figure out how to do the other support methods, but as I said, I suck at technology. I have no idea why it won’t seem to work, any suggestions? Help? Youtube videos to help? I’m grateful for any and all suggestions!

  • Downloading shouldn’t be a problem. Here’s the link – https://wordpress.org/latest.zip
    If it doesn’t work, try it from different browser.

    Hi , I request you to download WordPress from following link https://wordpress.org/latest.zip
    .
    WordPress is made by dynamic script which means you need a Apache or any other tool. You can’t directly run any photo scripts . There are two simple way to run WordPress :-

    1) If you want to use WordPress on local host then I will prefer you for local fly wheel or Xampp . This will help you a lot, especially for beginners.
    2) if you want to work online then you need hosting to run WordPress . The most popular panels used are Capanel and plesk .
    They both come with a simple option to install WordPress with in 5 min.

    3) if you want to install WordPress using FTP then download the zip file from https://WordPress.org/latest.zip . Unzip the files and enter all the database details and other things 🙂

    I hope this was helpful 🙂
