Chapter 11. Administrator's Reference

This chapter will provide information to help you with the WordPress administrative tasks. A few topics that have been covered elsewhere in the book are explained in greater detail here.

I'll review the essentials, and then give you some important links that you can visit for more details. This chapter is a kind of a 'cheat sheet' to which you can refer for quick answers to common administrative issues.

System requirements

The minimum system requirement for WordPress is a web server with the following software installed:

  • PHP Version 4.3 or greater
  • MySQL Version 4.1.2 or greater

Although Apache and Nginx are highly recommended by the WordPress developers, any server running PHP and MySQL will do.
