Installing WordPress

Hi Everyone,

Today I will be going through a simple WordPress set up. What you will need is a web server with SSH terminal access.

First we change into the directory that we are going to install WordPress.


Next, we pick up the latest version


Now we untar (unzip or whatever you prefer) the source code into our current directory.

#tar -xzvf latest.tar.gz

This step should create a folder called “wordpress”. That is fine, except we want our blog to be under the folder “mobile-web-marketing”. To rename the folder, we use the “mv” or “move” command.

#mv wordpress mobile-web-marketing

And voila, our WordPress is now ready to be set up. You can check it out here: Check back soon for another post about setting everything up.
