I want to use my DreamWeaver and WordPress setting locally for review or testing a website without making drastic changes to my website. What can I do to use XAMPP as a local host to my WordPress and Dreamweaver?
Using XAMPP as Local Host For My WordPress and DreamWeaver
If you already have XAMPP installed on your development or server machine, all you need to do is to put your code on the htdocs folder otherwise download and install it in your test environment. XAMPP folder usually reside on the C:/ directory. You can create another folder inside the htdocs folder and put all your web pages inside it. From your browser, you can navigate to your web pages by just typing "localhost/<your_test_directory>" on the browser's address bar. To avoid accidental modification of your current web pages you need to create a backup of it before doing the stuffs mentioned above. If you just freshly installed XAMPP on your server, need to run the Apache web service. You can do it by opening the XAMPP control panel.
I hope it helps.
