Start apache and mysql in Xampp. Go to phpmyadmin http://localhost/phpmyadmin/ url. Then select database which you want to export and click on "Export".

NExt screen will show like below. Click on "Home directory" -> Click "+" -> Click "Create Directory".
Write name of directory then click ok.
In temp directory upload the .zip files.
Extract the zip. For that select the zip file -> then click "Archive" -> Click "Extract Files".
After extraction, we got the samplewebsite.loc folder.
We created index.php to test the website is working or not. Now we don't need index.php file. Because in wordpress files already index.php file is there, that file we need for our wordpress website.
Go to samplewebsite.loc directory -> Select all files and folders -> Click on Move.
Select the directory where you want to move the files. We have to move all files in httpdocs folder then click OK.
All files are in httpdocs directory.
The wordpress site is working fine. Let us check wordpress admin dashboard.
