How to make a WordPress website from scratch

This +5 hour tutorial will take you through how to build a WordPress website from scratch. This will involve everything from the installation of WordPress and its database, to setting up a custom theme, and then also building that theme with it's basic HTML, CSS and more.

If you want to know how a project is built from the ground up, it will include building out the home page, sub-pages and other aspects too. This is a longer tutorial for the purpose of showing the whole process, but if you have any questions feel free to add them in the comments.
