I am using Ubuntu with LAMP and would like to install WP on my localhost. The reason for doing this is because I'd like to practice editing themes (using child themes) without messing up my actual site.
Does anyone know how to install WP locally? The main problem I'm facing is that WP wants me to create a configuration file. WP is asking me for my MySQL username and password but I don't have a username/password, at least I don't know that I do. I do recall, however, installing MySQL when I set up LAMP.
Thanks in advance.
