Wordpress In­stall

Linux Format - - Coding Academy -

Down­load Wordpress from Wordpress.org and set up a mySQL database with a user and pass­word. Af­ter you un­zip the file, up­load it and re­name the folder on your lo­cal­host lo­cated on the Linux PC or a web host­ing ac­count. Next, open the folder where the in­stal­la­tion is, such as lo­cal­host/wordpress or https://ex­am­ple.com. Click ‘Run the in­stal­la­tion’ and add your database name, user­name and pass­word. The de­fault pre­fix is wp_, but you can make it any­thing you like.

On a home server you may need to edit wp-con­fig-sam­ple.php and add the database name, user­name and pass­word, and then save it as

wp-con­fig.php if the server has trou­ble writ­ing the file. To­wards the end of the in­stal­la­tion, add a site ti­tle, user­name and pass­word for the admin area. We don’t want to con­fuse this user­name and pass­word with the database setup be­cause it has noth­ing to do with that. These cre­den­tials are so that you can log in to the site and con­trol the con­tent, theme and other fea­tures us­ing a browser. Once you en­ter these char­ac­ters and se­lect In­stall Wordpress, you’ll be taken to the admin lo­gin to en­ter the user­name and pass­word to log in.
