  • WordPress requires PHP, MySQL, and a fully-fledged webserver like Apache, Nginx, IIS, etc. See: https://wordpress.org/about/requirements/

    VSCode’s Live Server doesn’t provide any of these.

    Here’s a tool that will give you everything you need to run WordPress on your local computer: https://localwp.com/

    Other options are WAMP, XAMPP, DeskServer, etc

    You may use VS Code to develop/customize theme or plugin files, but these need to be loaded in the WordPress environment to see any effects.

    Ok I think I understand. I can edit and debug the code, JavaScript, CSS and the HTML and save. Then open my local server to view it on my WAMP server.

    So the live server with VS code is really for developing React type projects?
