I downloaded Joomla to create a website, but before buying any domain/hosting service, I prefer to work locally.
Then, I downloaded XAMPP and moved joomla's file to XAMPP's htdocs folder.
From localhost domain, I started joomla installation. At a certain point, I'm requested to insert data for accessing database.
Actually, my site needs no database. My questions are:
Is it necessary to specify a database's data during Joomla's configuration?
Should I install MySQL on my PC and use its access data during configuration of joomla, while working locally?
If answer to previous question is YES, can I change access data any time to fulfill hosting service requirements, once my site is uploaded to "real server?
