Support » Localhost Installs » New to WordPress

  • Hi

    I am very new to WordPress and want to create a website. My aim is to create it offline first before publishing it. I have downloaded WordPress and set up Desktop Server. I am doing this with another person who has a Apple MAC. Is there any way that both of us can edit the website?

    Also I see these beautifully created websites. Where do I begin. I have no coding experience.

    Any help is appreciated.

  • If you are on a PC, use WAMP for local dev.
    Then you 2 can share the same backups.
    Start from an existing theme you like.

    Hi minesh1234,

    it simple. make sure if you are connected each other (have the same IP range, for example both of you have ip address 192.168.1.xx).

    First, create your DB then extract your WordPress to your htdocs folder.
    Then, create a new tab on your browser access your localhost with url: 192.168.1.xx/wordpress (this is your IP address).

    Install WordPress with that url and your friend can access it too.

    Or if you already install your WordPress, you can go to WordPress dashboard > Settings > General. You will see if there are WordPress and Website url. Change the value with your IP address (192.168.1.xx/wordpress)
