# What is WordPress
WordPress is an open source, free to use Content Management System. It was initially designed and build to support emerging bloggers to
effectively communicate the message to larger audience by focusing more on the content and reduce the time investment required to code a new page for every single post.
# What is a domain & a server
A web domain is an ip address with human readable name mask that points to your website when a user types it in the web browser.
A domain is just a name available on the web to point to the directory where you keep your website, to build that directory you need a web server.
# Download and install Local server –
– Xampp – https://www.apachefriends.org/download.html
– Wamp – http://www.wampserver.com/en/
# Setting up database and db_user
Once we download and install Xampp/Wampp server, we need to create a new database. To do it easily, we run the xampp/wampp server, then in the web browser we type – localhost/phpmyadmin or localhost:8080/phpmyadmin
In phymyadmin look for the option create database. Give it a unique name and for language, select collection and hit the create database button.
