Professional WordPress – Design and Development Review….

The WordPress source code features many different PHP , Javascript , and CSS code files. Each file serves a specific purpose in WordPress. The beauty of open source software is that all code is publicly available , which means you can easily explore the code to better understand how WordPress functions. The best resource for learning WordPress is the WordPress software itselft.

WordPress comes with three directories by default: wp-admin , wp-content , and wp-includes.Core files are all files in the wp-admin and wp-includes directories and the majority of the files in the root WordPress directory, The wp-content directory holds all of your custom files , including themes , plugins , and media. This directory contains the code that controls content manipulation and presentation in WordPress. WordPress HTML content , such as pages and posts , is stored in the MySQL database along with metadata such as tag and category structures, both of which are covered in detail in Chapter 6.

The most important file in any WordPress installation is the wp-config.php file. This file contains all database connection settings , including the database name , username , and password to access your MySQL database. This file also stores additional database and other advanced settings. The wp-config.php file was originally named wp-config-sample.php. Renaming the file to wp-config.php is one of the first steps to installing WordPress.

The wp-config file is typically stored in the root directory of WordPress. Alternatively , you can move the wp-config file out of the WordPress root directory and into the parent directory. So if your WordPress directory is located here,


you can safely move the file to here:


WordPress looks for the wp-config file in the root directory first , and if it can’t find that file it looks in the parent directory. This happens automatically so no settings need to be changed for this to work.

Initially , you set up WordPress in the document root of your local Apache.If you wanted more than one local website , you could set each website in its own folder. This works and you use it for many development sites. However ,  you can also set up each web server to respond to a local “fake” domain name. Sometimes , when moving to production , using this method makes the conversion from development to production easier.
