Installing Wordpress on WAMP(Windows Apache MySql PHP).

It is very easy once you know what to do.

Get WAMP at http://wamp.sourceforge.net
Install it to [custom_drive]:\wamp
Now download wordpress from http://wordpress.org
I will be using version 3.0.1 for this tutorial .First start WAMP by clicking on the desktop icon . WAMP Server

Alternatively type these into the command shell.
net start wampmysqld
net start wampapache
Now once the server has been started open an web browser. Let’s say Opera.
Go to this URL (loop back address.for getting ur actual ip type ipconfig in the cmd prompt)
You will see a page like this .
Now there click phpmyadmin (I personally prefer it over sqlbuddy).
Now create a database named wordpress there .

Now extract wordpress to custom_drive]:\wamp\www\wordpress\
