Join Morten Rand-Hendriksen for an in-depth discussion in this video Running WordPress under WebMatrix, part of Installing and Running WordPress: WebMatrix.
So far in this course we've installed WebMatrix and WebMatrix in turn installed the Web Platform…Installer that installed WordPress onto our computer.…A lot of applications were installed and to make everything work you have to make sure…that all of them are running at the same time. I'll show you what I mean.…If I go to my browser right now, and I try to access WordPress.…So I will go to localhost and then to :2067 which is the port that the Web Platform Installer…assigned for WordPress for me. That number might be different for you.…
You see that I get nothing. WordPress is not here.…That's because WebMatrix is not currently running.…To get access to WordPress I need to start up WebMatrix.…I can do that from my Start menu. I click the Start menu.…If you don't see it here on the main Start menu, you can go to All Programs, and then…find WebMatrix down here and start it.…When you start WebMatrix you go directly to this page where you can choose if you want…to open an existing site, you want to create a new site from a template, or you want to go to the App Gallery.…

Q: How do I take the local version of my WordPress site and publish it on the web?
A: The course WordPress Quick Tips: Migration and Database Reset shows you how to migrate a local site to production. The method shown creates a new duplicate of the original website, but it requires detailed database work and effectively results in a hard reset of the target site. Proceed carefully.
