To deploy a Joomla website using XAMPP, you can follow these steps:

  1. Download and install XAMPP on your computer. You can download XAMPP from the official Apache Friends website (https://www.apachefriends.org/index.html).
  2. Once XAMPP is installed, start the Apache and MySQL services by running the XAMPP Control Panel.
  3. Download the latest version of Joomla from the official Joomla website (https://www.joomla.org/download.html). Extract the downloaded Joomla package to the 'htdocs' folder inside the XAMPP installation directory.
  4. Rename the Joomla folder to whatever you want to use as your website's name. For example, if you want your website to be called 'mywebsite', rename the Joomla folder to 'mywebsite'.
  5. Open your web browser and go to 'http://localhost/phpmyadmin'. Create a new database for your Joomla website by clicking on the 'Databases' tab, entering a name for the database, and clicking 'Create'.
  6. Open a new tab in your web browser and go to 'http://localhost/your-website-folder' (replace 'your-website-folder' with the name of the folder you renamed the Joomla package to).
  7. Follow the on-screen instructions to complete the Joomla installation process. You will need to enter the database details you created earlier.
  8. Once the installation is complete, you can log in to the Joomla admin panel by going to 'http://localhost/your-website-folder/administrator' and entering the admin username and password you set during the installation process.


Your Joomla website is now deployed and accessible locally through XAMPP. You can further customize and manage your website through the Joomla admin panel.
