Local WordPress Installation Automated

Automatically Install Wordpress Locally

What if installing WordPress locally was as easy as using the installer script from the control panel with your web hosting? That would be nice. Well, I don’t know what options exist for this, but I’ve written a shell script to make this supper easy. Local WordPress installation made easy! All I have to do now to install a new WordPress site on my local server type this in the terminal:

wpinstall NewSite ~/Sites/

That’s it! After running this, I get asked for MySQL username and password, a database is created, and the wp-config file is created and configured accordingly to be able to access the database and install plugins from online through your dashboard.
