WP Sandbox: Running WordPress on Your Local Machine

WordPress is all about sharing your thoughts and disseminating your ideas.  Sometimes, though, you just want to try something out, or test a plugin you’ve downloaded, and it’s not for public consumption.  In this presentation, Alfred Ayache introduces you to XAMPP, your very own, very private web stack, which allows you to install WordPress on your computer.  He’ll then show you how to setup multiple domain names (aka virtual hosts), and even carry around all this open source goodness on a jumpdrive.
