    Default Wordpress on PC with Web Platform Installer

    The MSFT WPI is a tool that allows you to install quite a lot of web tools on your PC for offline use such as testing them before deploying online. Here's how you can install Wordpress on your PC using this utiltity:

    1. Setup IIS, MySQL & phpMyAdmin.
    2. Download the Microsoft Web Platform Installer.
    3. Install PHP

    To install PHP: Start WPI -> Web Platform -> check PHP 5.2.10
    For Wordpress: WPI -> Web Applications –> Blogs -> check Wordpress -> Install.

    Configuring the installation:







    After installation, in your browser navigate to: localhost/wordpress (if your install directory was wordpress.)

    Here I've setup Wordpress & Drupal on my PC:

    Yep, there are quite a few alternatives, but the UI of WPI & one-click options for the number of internet based apps available supersedes the alternatives
