Develop on Your Laptop First

When attempting to create a website using software, such as WordPress, or creating an HTML or PHP site from scratch, it is often helpful to develop the site first on your laptop (or your desktop if you still live in the stone age…like me) and then transfer it when you get it ready for production. Using this approach cuts down on ftp time and waiting for network glitches. It also enables you to develop wherever you are even if no wi-fi is handy. No matter what OS you use you can grab a copy of xampp and make life much easier for yourself. One place to get it is at the http://www.apachefriends.org/en/xampp.html web site. If is free and all the apps on it are open source, which is the way things were meant to be.
