3.  Click the Home icon in the upper left to return to the main page, then click Privileges. If a user relating to WordPress does not already exist in the list of users, create one:

  1. Click Add a new User.
  2. Chose a username for WordPress (‘admin’ is good) and enter it in the User name field. (Be sure Use text field: is selected from the dropdown.)
  3. For Host, select Local and type in localhost

  6. Leave all options under Global privileges at their defaults.
  7. Click Go.

4. Return to the Privileges screen and click the Check privileges icon on the user you’ve just created for WordPress. In the Database-specific privileges section, select the database you’ve just created for WordPress under the Add privileges to the following database dropdown. The page will refresh with privileges for that database. Click Check All to select all privileges, and click Go.

5. On the resulting page, make note of the host name listed after Server: at the top of the page. (This will usually be localhost.)

6. Returning to where you extracted the WordPress package, rename the file wp-config-sample.php to wp-config.php.

7. Open the renamed wp-config.php file in your favorite text editor. Here’s a screenshot of how the wp-config.php is set up.

8. Fill in the following information

The name of the database you created for WordPress. (ex. WordPress)
The username you created for WordPress (ex. admin)
The password you chose for the WordPress username.
The hostname you determined  (usually localhost)

9. Save the file.

10.  Run the install scrip by copying and pasting this URL into your browser http://localhost/wordpress/wp-admin/install.php

Congratulations! You’ve set up a local installation of WordPress running on your own local server. You can now populate your blog with content and tweak the designs of your templates without having to work on a live site, giving you a grace period before making your work public. You can preview your site by returning to http://localhost/ on the PC
