WORDPRESS INSTALLATION FOR YOUR BLOG/SITE
Hey .. Today we are going to learn how to install wordpress and get started with your blog/site.
Step1. Download wordpress from here
Step2. Put this zip file in the document root of your web folder and unzip it.
Step3. Goto file wp-config.php present in the folder you just extracted the WP installation in .
So lest say you extracted the installation into wordpress folder of your document root, goto that folder and edit wp-config.php present in there.
Or else if you extracted it in root folder just edit wp-config.php present over there.
Step4. In wp-config.php provide your database credentials, the lines that you need to modify will look something like :
// ** MySQL settings - You can get this info from your web host ** //
/** The name of the database for WordPress */
/** MySQL database username */
/** MySQL database password */
/** MySQL hostname */
/** Database Charset to use in creating database tables. */
/** The Database Collate type. Don't change this if in doubt. */
Step5. After editing wp-config.php, you need to open your web browser and enter the url of your blog.
So lets say if your blog is, http://myblog.com/ ,you need to enter this:
http://myblog.com/wp-admin/install.php and hit enter.
This will ask you some personal questions (username, password for your blog’s admin section , to be precise) and once you do this, it’ll install WP and you are done!!!
