Installing and Running WordPress: WebMatrix – New course

Wonder how to install and run WordPress on your Windows computer? The new course Installing and Running WordPress: WebMatrix shows you how.

Part three of my new Installing and Running WordPress series is now out. The new course, called Installing and Running WordPress: WebMatrix is now available in the Online Training Library and focuses on how to use Microsoft’s free WebMatrix 2 application to install and run WordPress on any Windows computer. WebMatrix is more than just a server environment for WordPress to run in: It’s also a code editor that makes it easy to write code for WordPress, so if you want to try something new, it is worth a look.

Having WordPress installed natively on your computer makes experimenting with and building things for WordPress much easier and is an important tool in your WordPress toolkit. Installing and Running WordPress: WebMatrix is now available, so go check it out and let me know what you think!

This course is part of the Installing and Running WordPress course series. Other courses available include:
