InstantWP: What is Instant WordPress?

Instant WP is a free standalone portable environment where you can develop a self-hosted WordPress site if the web is not accessible. Known as “Instant WordPress,” InstantWP’s best feature is that you can run it right off of a thumb drive or external hard drive but can also run right off of your computer. Obviously, these changes are not live.

Another benefit of InstantWP is that it comes with many different kinds of “guinea pig” posts and such so you have content to refer to when choosing a WordPress Theme. You can install InstantWP as many times as you’d like on as many devices as you’d like. In the case of a group project, you could hand off the thumb drive with InstantWP installed to another team member and they can open it and start editing from where you left off.

InstantWP is only for Windows operating systems. It does not work on Mac or other operating systems.
