Add existing wordpress site from xampp localhost to LocalWP

I already have my wordpress website develpped locally using xampp in windows. How do I add this exsiting local website to localwp? this site will be pushed later to wpengine. Thank you!

The easiest way to bring an existing site into Local (it’s just “Local” not “LocalWP”) is to use either Duplicator or UpDraft to make a backup – including the database, of course – and then drag the resulting zip file into the main window of Local. It takes a minute or so (longer if you have a large site) and asks a couple questions. When it’s complete, select the new site from the left column in Local, right-click and then Start. After ~10 seconds, you can click the “VIEW SITE” or “ADMIN” button near the upper-right.
Hope that helps.

Jeff
