Laragon for Local WordPress Development
This mini course is for people who want to setup a PHP development environment on their computer. Easy, fast, free, and well supported -- Laragon hits a home run.
"Laragon" is a program for Windows that installs and allows you to manage the Apache web server, MySQL database engine, and the PHP language interpreter. This is what is needed for WordPress.
The course is divided into two modules. In the first we download and install Laragon and we setup WordPress. We also do a quick tour. The first module covers the essentials that users should have.
The second module is provided in a "cookbook" format where small, targeted tasks are explained and demonstrated. These include tasks such as switching to a different version of PHP, modifying some of the PHP settings, or viewing the Apache and PHP error logs.
