Hello friends,

if you are thinking to setup a new wordpress blog and want to run at localhost then you should install wordpress at local and then modify it before it goes live.
Well lets start how to Setup a new copy of Wordpress 4.0 on Mac OSx 10.7.4 (in any version).
To do so you have to Download only 2 things

1. Xampp Server for Mac OSx (Click here to go to download page)
2. Wordpress latest Zip (Click here to go to download page)


  1. After complete the download you will get something like xampp bla bla bla.dmg file
  2. Just double click on it.

  15. open this php file and search in this file something like "DB_database name you database name here", DB_user Your username here and something like this.
  16. Now replace "database name here" with your database name that you created in phpmyadmin.
  17. replace username with "root"
  18. And Delete the "Your password here" and leave it blank like "",
  19. Now save this php file with renaming it "wp-config.php"
  20. Done ....You are almost done now.
