Installation On A Local Computer

You might want to install Automad on your local computer during development. Like any other CMS, Automad requires a webserver to be running. The easiest way to achive this, is to install a complete webserver package on your computer - for example XAMPP. After successfully installing XAMPP, you can simply visit your local copy in your browser at for example http://localhost/path/to/automad. If this is all new to you, please look up XAMPP's documentation, how to configure a local webserver.
When developing is done, you can move the full installation to your real webspace, by just uploading your whole Automad directory.
