We will demonstrate how to create and manage a test server to install and configure a WordPress site
on a local PC. For the purposes of this course all the demonstrations will be carried out on this test
server, although the lessons could be completed on a fully functioning web server.
In the next lesson we will download and install the XAMPP software. This will be used to create a test
web server on which we will host our WordPress test site.
