WordPress Setup

Here are the step-by-step instructions you'll need to follow to setup your wordpress site. This is assuming you've already purchased your domain name and have your site setup with a host.1. Download the latest wordpress and install it:

# cd /home/<your-account>
# wget http://wordpress.org/latest.tar.gz

The version at the time of this article is 2.8.

# tar -xzvf <wordpress-file.gz>
# ln -s wordpress public_html
# chown -R <your-user>:<your-group> wordpress

You'll need to have already setup your database - check with your ISP if you don't know how to do it. Then go to http://www.<your-site>.com and wordpress should ask you for your database configuration details and set everything else up.

Now you're ready to start using wordpress!
