In this tutorial we will learn how to install and configure Joomla at local system. Benefit of this is that you can build and modify website as per your required and when you are satisfied then put it online for public.
Joomla needs a Web Server to run, so it is not a normal software that can install on your own computer normally. In this tutorial first of all, we will setup a server on our computer which is required to install and run joomla. This means you'll make Joomla run on your computer as a real, "live" web server. This method is fine for testing purposes and it makes it easy to develop a site without having access to a live web server.
