Average rating 4.6/5 (4.6 (18 ratings) Instead of using a simple lifetime average, Udemy calculates a course’s star rating by considering a number of different factors such as the number of ratings, the age of ratings, and the likelihood of fraudulent ratings.)
Prior experience of using WordPress is useful, but not essential
DesktopServer is available for Windows and Mac, so you will need a computer running one of these operating systems
This course will teach you about DesktopServer and how to use it to set up a web server environment on your Windows PC or Mac so that you can work with WordPress locally.
This is not a course that teaches you how to do WordPress development or WordPress web design, but it is ideal for anyone that is a WordPress developer or web designer, or even just someone who want to play around and become familiar with WordPress without having the hassle of buying a domain and hosting.
This course shows you exactly how to quickly and easily create a local environment where you can…
Do all of your work, without the need for a web hosting environment
Work with, or learn, WordPress locally
Work on client sites away from the live environment
Design, develop, and test in a secure and private environment
Safely run old versions of WordPress without the risk of getting hacked, infected, or compromised
Make changes – without the risk of breaking the live site
Put security in place BEFORE your website online
In addition, you’ll learn how to create template sites, pre-populated with your essential plugins and theme that you can use as a starting point for any new site you build. Just click a button and have the site built for you!
DesktopServer comes in two versions, free, and paid. This course takes you through how to use BOTH the paid and free versions to work with and move your sites between the online hosted environment and the local PC/Mac environment.
The example site used in the course is a real site that is under development for a client, and the course had been created by someone who has been actively using WordPress since it’s very first release in 2003.
This is the quickest and simplest way to work with WordPress offline that I know of, and is used by numerous WordPress professionals around the world.
Just click on the blue button that says ‘Take this course’, and remember, it’s entirely risk free!

The course is also for anyone that needs to make changes to a WordPress site, or build a WordPress site and do so in a safe, secure manner, and without disrupting the existing site or it’s users
“Good clear instruction.” (Scott Oliver)
“Simple and clear so far” (Yusef Ali)
“This gave me just the training I needed to become familiar with Desktop Server. I know it would’ve been a little better if it was on a Mac, but I found there wasn’t anything I couldn’t translate. Initially I will only need the free version, but expect to need the full version by fall, and this showed me how to manage in the meantime. All in all, a recommended course with a great instructor.” (Archie Wells)
I’ve been building web sites since the mid/late 90’s, and am the author of the book WordPress For All : How To Create A Website For Business Or Personal Use, Quickly & Easily – Whatever Your Skill Level. It is available available on Amazon for the Kindle, with a paperback version due to follow in the near future.
I’ve been using WordPress since it was first released, and prior to that, B2 (the software WordPress was forked from). I’ve built numerous websites both for myself and for clients, using HTML, WordPress, and Joomla. From the very first commercial web site I built (in the days before Google existed) I have made a point of building my sites with search engine optimisation in mind, and have had top ranking for many of my sites for some of the toughest keywords out there.
I’m a big fan of Twitter, and if you follow me on Twitter then make sure you let me know that you found me on Udemy and I’ll be sure to follow you back.
