How to Install Drupal on Windows localhost with WampServer

, , Leave a comment

1) Here,  I am assuming  that you have Installed WAMP already, if not, then proceed to and download the latest version. After the installation, launch it, type on your browser, and make sure you see the default screen.

2) Download Drupal – I’m using the v7.14 .zip version. Unzip into a dir at: C:wampwww, for example: C:wampwwwdrupal – where drupal is the main directory containing all the drupal files.

3) Create a database in WAMP using PHPMyadmin. You should have the following info ready:database name, username and password.

4) To begin installation, type: You should see a page displayed similar to the below. By the time we finish, all the processes at the left hand side must have a green-check mark.

     (a) Leave “standard” Radio button checked, click “save and continue”.

      (b) Choose Language: “English” (built-in) is selected. Leave as is, click “Save and Continue”.
    (c) Configuration: “MySQL…..” is checked by default. Leave as it is. Type in your database name,username and password. Localhost is the default Database host. Leave as it is. Click “Save and Continue”.

If the information  provided by you are all ok, the installation will begin automatically.

      (d) Site information: fill in the details as needed. Examples below:
Site name        : My Drupal site
Email address :
Username       : the username/password with which you(administrator) want to access Drupal.
* You could leave the rest of the settings as is / blank as we are on a local host.

Now Click “Save and Continue”.

(e) Whooo!! Drupal is successfully installed. Click “visit your new site” for Drupal’s homepage.

 And this is what Drupal looks like:
