Learn DesktopServer: We love DesktopServer for developing websites locally, trying new features and having the ability to tinker with a site without messing up the live version. There are plenty of ways to get this done but they involve setting up a server on your computer, configuring a database, crossing your fingers and hoping it works and then you are good to go.

Personally I would rather not worry about the setup and I would love to get into WordPress quicker. This is where DesktopServer comes into play. Select from a series of options, click next next, next and you’re ready to go! It could not be easier.

What is DesktopServer?

Whether you’re a WordPress developer, designer, or website owner, chances are you have accumulated your own stash of tools, plugins, and processes that make your life easier. DesktopServer is a single integrated tool that is proven to save you time testing, developing, managing, and creating fully functional website servers on your own computer.

DesktopServer allows you to quickly and easily generate optimized WordPress projects that run locally. Prior to DesktopServer you would have had to install a LAMP stack, edit multiple configuration files, create databases, create security credentials, and repeat the process for each new project or site you wanted to run; a painful time consuming and unfriendly process for non-developers and seasoned programmers alike. DesktopServer diminishes mundane tasks and is preferred even by advanced developers who like to tinker with WordPress Multisite based projects, domain aliases, and host files.
