It's been a long time since I've done this course, so I'm not sure on that in particular. But, anytime you are making a new WordPress site (even locally), you do need a fresh install.

When I was working regularly with WordPress (but it's been a while), I just kept the zipped download handy, and anytime I started a new site, I unzipped and installed fresh.

Hope that helps. :)


No, you do not. If you have Wordpress already installed what you are doing in the video is creating a new theme that uses Bootstrap. Either download Bootstrap or git clone it into your themes folder and then in the backend of Wordpress change the theme so you have a Bootstrap framework theme to work with.
