XAMPP is an easy to install Apache distribution containing MariaDB, PHP, and Perl. Just download and start the installer. Xampp allows you to work on a local server and test a local copies of websites using PHP code and MySQL databases. Once xampp is active, you can access your local copy with a browser using an url like.
I built a site in WP offline using Apache and MySql with XAMPP.
My idea was to prepare all and thenm load online via FTP (Mozilla).
But I’m facing a problem and don’t know if manual solution could create troubles inside php files (frankly guess so).
I used the WordPress plugin offered by Bitnami/XAMPP.
The name in WP/XAMPP (created automatically) is “127.0.0.1/wordpress/.”
for example one of permalinks is:
while for our other sites an example is:
Now I have to upload all but the name must become:
I really don’t know if there is a plugin that automatically changes name to all: it should be good news.
I already have the problem to manually change all the links inside my mod’s (my sites are always totally modified with child theme and many css, js, etc: this part I do manually, indeed … but how to change all rest inside WP structure?
Thank you in advance.
Why don’t you go ahead and build the WordPress over at your new host with its domain name then copy over the theme files manually via FTP or zip the theme up and move it over?
Install new copies of your plugins.
Now export your content on the XAMPP site and import it over to your new site.
And you have your XAMPP for continued experimenting, creating, and content updates if you wish to do that from there.
If you want to upload your WordPress website from local server (XAMPP) to online hosting then I will recommend you this Plugin.

This is old.
We now recommend using MAMP instead of XAMPP. See these instructions for setting up for our PHP classes.
XAMPP is a free distribution package that makes it easy to install Apache Web Server, PHP, PEAR, and MySQL. Before installing XAMPP, you should turn off any other web servers and instances of MySQL you have running on your Windows machine.
Installing XAMPP on Windows
- Download and Install Visual Studio 2008 redistributable package because XAMPP will need this to run properly.
- Download and Install XAMPP for PHP 5.X for Windows- Be sure to select the proper version of PHP as there are many choices.
- Allow the program to make changes to your machine.
- It is VERY important to install on the root of c:. If you don't, some functions of XAMPP may have restrictions that will force you to adjust the settings in your UAC, which isn't recommended.
- Double-click on the new XAMPP Control Desktop shortcut or Use the Search feature in Windows 10 to find the XAMPP Control App, which opens up the XAMPP Control Panel Application. There you will see a column of 'Start' buttons. Select the ones for MySQL and for Apache..you should now see a green 'Running' indicator
- NOTE: If you find another service is already running on port 80 on your computer, read our instructions on how to change XAMPP to use a different port like 8080.
Testing your XAMPP Installation
In your web browser, go to http://localhost. You should see the start page of XAMPP:
- After downloading the class files, create a folder in htdocs named 'Webucator' and extract your class files in that folder.
Setting the MySQL Password on Windows
The PHP files use 'pwdpwd' for the MySQL root password, while the default password is NO password.
- Click Admin next to MySQL on the XAMPP Control Panel to bring up the phpMyAdmin.
- Choose the mysql database on the left.
- Then choose the SQL tab on the top and run the following statement:
- You also need to update line 21 of the xampp/phpMyAdmin/config.inc.php file with the new password (
pwdpwd). Note: In order to connect to the myPHPAdmin center, you must do these steps in order.
Installing Northwind Database using XAMPP
NOTE: you should download the class files above before following these instructions, as it contains the Northwinds Database file(s).
- To install the Northwind database used in class, click Admin next to MySQL on the XAMPP Control Panel to bring up the phpMyAdmin. That should take you to http://localhost/phpmyadmin.
- If it asks you to login, the username is root and the password is pwdpwd.
- On that page, click on the Import link under the Localhost heading. After, it should say 'Importing into the current server'.
- Browse to the Northwind-MySQL.sql file in your class files (c:xampphtdocsWebucator).
- Click the Go button on the bottom left of the page.
- You should get a Success message and Northwind should be added to your list of Databases.
Recommended Code EditorVisual Studio Code (Download, Install, and Set up)
- While you may use a different editor or IDE, Visual Studio Code is an excellent IDE to learn to code on. It provides a nice balance of power and simplicity and it is available on Windows and Mac.
Testing PHP Files
All your class files should be located in C:xampphtdocsWebucatorClassFiles
To test any of the class files in your browser, say C:xampphtdocsWebucatorClassFilesPHPBasicsDemosHelloWorld.php, you can use 1 of 2 methods:
- Method 1:
- Go to http://localhost/Webucator/ClassFiles/PHPBasics/Demos/HelloWorld.php in your web browser.
- Follow the same pattern to view all other class files; basically the C:xampphtdocs gets changed to http://localhost/
- Method 2:
- Go to http://localhost/Webucator/ClassFiles/ in your web browser.
- Bookmark that page in your browser for easy access to it from now on.
- From there, you can see all the lesson folders and drill down to any class file for testing/viewing.
