Inorder to Install WordPress on the WampServer, you have to create Database for wordpress blog. To create Database navigate to http://localhost and then click on the phpmyadmin link towards the bottom of the Server Configuration screen, under Your Aliases.  After phpMyAdmin gets launched, create a new database (example: db_001) but I advise you to name it something else so that you reduce the chances of a successful bruteforce MySQL attack.

5. Install  WordPress

Download WordPress from WordPress.org and Unzip it in wamp/ www /sample Folder in your local machine. Now navigate to http://localhost.com/sample and follow the wizard to setup WordPress.

Complete the Wizard.

Note:  Enter the Database name which you have created. Enter Database User: root and Leave password Empty.

    Sorry to contradict.. I find XAMPP is the best solution :)..

    I am using XAMPP with a Windows XP Virtual Machine under my host Windows 8.

    I use it for testing and development purpose for my website.. I run a complete mirror of the live website there for local testing before live deployment :).

    Thanks :)
