Setup

If you plan to follow along with the exercises during class, which we very highly recommend, you must have the appropriate software installed on your computer before class begins if you wish to follow along. For this class you will need:

  • WAMP or MAMP
  • A copy of the latest WordPress files, unzipped and placed in the web root directory on your computer
  • A MySQL database named wordpress
  • A copy of the course files; you’ll receive a link to them once your course registration has been approved.

Having trouble with the setup? Make sure you contact us before class is scheduled to begin! If you’re attending the class in our classroom, come at least 30 minutes early if you need some help with setting up your computer.
