If you're not already familiar with WordPress I would recommend looking at the Learn WordPress track first but this course on the WordPress Development track details how you'd install it.


Alright; I will check that. Thanks! I saw that track and thought It wasn't for installing but just development. Your input gives me valuable direction to start with. Have a great weekend Rich!!

No problem. You too :)

WPBeginner has a great tutorial for this - helped me out first time I did a local wp install. http://www.wpbeginner.com/wp-tutorials/how-to-install-wordpress-locally-on-mac-using-mamp/

Wordpress lessons are no longer on Treehouse??? Are there any other links??
