Chapter 4: Installing WordPress on Your Web Server

In This Chapter

  • Installing WordPress via Fantastico
  • Manually installing WordPress
  • Running installation scripts

This chapter takes you through two installation methods for WordPress — an automatic, one-click installation with the Fantastico script installer, which is available from your Web hosting provider, and manual installation.

I also show you how to set up a MySQL database by using the cPanel Web hosting management interface. By the time you're done reading this chapter, you'll be logged in to and looking at your brand-spanking-new WordPress Dashboard, ready to start publishing content right away (if you already have WordPress installed, go ahead and skip to Chapter 5 in this minibook, which contains great information about configuring WordPress for optimum performance and security).
