General setup for WordPress is something you have to do after installation. With the initial custom configurations, you will guide the development of your website. This is very necessary, so you should practice on localhost before applying it to the real site.
I wrote a tutorial on how to install WordPress in the basic WordPress series. The previous tutorial was me install WordPress blog on localhost. There are things you can’t do on localhost that you can only do on the real site. There are things doing on localhost that make no sense but you have to do it first to get used to it. It will be easier for you to apply it on the real page later because you have practiced before.
