Web designing with WordPress and XAMPP

I was experimenting with WordPress and XAMPP. To install WordPress I have to copy WordPress files in the htdoc folder of xampp and rename it to the website name. I wonder, after completing one project how I will start the second one. I mean I have to copy Wordpress files again and rename the folder for second website name. Isn’t create the extra load?

Thank you for the time.

Hello!

Yep, that’s one way and it’s a problem

However, there are better alternatives. Docker (or docker-compose), for instance. With Docker, you have containers that you can reinitialize with a command and just work: you create the theme or plugin you’re working on and you’re ready. Of course, depending on your needs it may need a complex setup or event creating a container image.

Take a look at Docker and the official WordPress docker container → Docker Hub.
