When it comes to setting up a server on your own computer, many people may have toyed with the idea and then not continued because they thought it would be too difficult. For anyone who has been putting off creating a WAMP server on their home computer, the 34 pages and 34 illustrations in "Setting Up A WAMP Server on Your Windows Desktop" take you step by step through the process of creating a WAMP server on a Windows desktop.
There are many reasons for setting up a website on your own computer first, and only actually putting it online once you're really happy with it, and some of the reasons for having a desktop server are:
EVERYONE who creates a website makes mistakes. None of us are perfect. Don't go 'live' until your site is completely finished, and you are fully happy with it.
If you make mistakes on a 'live' website, the Google-bot will index those pages, but when it returns later (after you've deleted the offending pages) it won't be able to find them. This will make the Google-bot wary of indexing future pages. You don't want to upset Google, so make sure your mistakes are made in private!
Take the opportunity of trying things out. Do you want one column, 2 columns or 3 columns? Do you want black text on a pale background, pale text on a dark background, or something in between? Do you want a site made with WordPress, with Drupal, with Joomla, or with some other software? Having a desktop server means you can try them all!
If you've ever wanted to try this but not known where to begin, then this free step by step guide to creating a WAMP server on your Windows Desktop provides the perfect easy to follow starting point.
