Setting Up Your Laptop As a Local Web Server
Are you interested in setting up your laptop as a local web server? The answer is most probably yes if you’ve inherited a WordPress website or you’re not confident in your ability to maintain your live website, duplicating your site on your hard drive can be a great solution. In this video series, we’re going to take you through the steps on how to duplicate your live WordPress website on your hard drive.
Reasons to Duplicate Your Website
There are several reasons why you might want to duplicate your website:
You Inherited a WordPress Website
If you’ve inherited a WordPress website, you might be afraid to touch the live website. By duplicating the live website on your hard drive, you can explore it locally without touching the live website. This can help you get familiar with how the website works without risking any damage to the live site.
Your Website is Out of Date
If your website is out of date and you want to experiment with updating WordPress, plugins, and themes, duplicating the website on your hard drive can be very helpful. By testing the updates on your hard drive first, you can ensure that they’ll work properly on your live website.
You Want to Test and Explore Plugins
If you want to test and explore plugins on your WordPress website, but you don’t want to risk breaking your live website, duplicating your website on your hard drive is a great solution. You can explore different plugins on your hard drive and then install the plugin you like on the live website.
You Want to Redesign Your WordPress Website
If you want to redesign your existing website using the same content, but with a different look and feel, duplicating your website on your hard drive is a great option. You can redesign the site on your hard drive and then upload the redesigned website.
