• Instant WordPress

    Posted on September 11, 2012 by in Everything Else

    This maybe something some of you have come across before but as someone who has used WordPress for about 5 years I was not aware there was a out of the box package to run a test\dev instance WordPress locally on your Windows machine with no configuration required.

    Instant WordPress is a a simple .exe which just a gnats hair over 54MB and contains a webserver with PHP and MYSQL fully configured to run WordPress 3.3.2. Plugins, updates and themes work just as you would expect and it runs very nicely. I have found it very useful in working on plugins and themes, hopefully some of you will too.
