In this post I will show you how to install Magento on WAMP server in your local computer.

Installing Magento on WAMP can be pretty painful for beginners, as magento requires a lot of server configurations which are not set by default.

*For those who are wondering, Why a server ? Well, for running a website you have to host the site in any server so that people in the internet can find it. In this case you will be turning your computer into a server and will host your website in it, so that you can see how your website behaves. But in this case your website will open only from the server i.e. your local computer.
