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.

#cd [ROOT WEB DIRECTORY HERE]

Next, we pick up the latest version

#wget http://wordpress.org/latest.tar.gz

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: http://blogs.citydirect.info/mobile-web-marketing/. Check back soon for another post about setting everything up.
