Installing WordPress with SimpleScripts
In recent years, SimpleScripts has bypassed Fantastico (discussed later in this chapter) as the preferred method for one-click WordPress installs. That’s because SimpleScripts allows users to upload newer versions of WordPress sooner than Fantastico has been able to offer those versions.
SimpleScripts guides you through the process of installing WordPress. You don’t have to download the WordPress software and then upload it to your WordPress account, as you have to when you do a manual install (discussed later in this chapter). In fact, it’s virtually unnecessary to do a manual WordPress installation, because tools like SimpleScripts can do it all for you!
