It is a bit ironic that I would need to explain just how to setup WordPress for somebody that wants to produce tech-related content, but I’ve promised to guide you from the floor up so let’s begin. WordPress is really a blogging platform that just is actually our favorite. Many people will argue that WordPress is really a Content Management System (CMS), but I’ll refrain from entering that argument and just say so it is a good tool that enables me to publish content on the web quickly and efficiently. Once you’ve registered your domain and chosen your online host your next step is creating WordPress. Hopefully you’ve taken my advice and opted with Bluehost, but also for the goal of this tutorial, I will assume you took an alternative route.
If your hosting company doesn’t give you a WordPress automatic installation you will have to begin by verifying you’ve FTP access. Personally I use a free piece of software called Filezilla to manage my FTP accounts, but feel free to make use of CuteFTP, SmartFTP, Fetch or any FTP software you are comfortable using. Given that you’ve FTP software installed and you’ve verified that you have the ability to connect to your online server using the login credentials given by your online host it is time and energy to download WordPress here mohd Faraz by reviewsgems. The default download of WordPress is a zip file that you will have to extract ahead of transferring to your webspace via FTP. While connected making use of your FTP software you will have to decide where you wish to install WordPress, but by default it must be within the http docs or public_html folder. If you intend on building a traditional website and simply want to incorporate your Tech Blog as one aspect of your website you then will have to develop a new folder inside the http docs or public_html folder. It is now time and energy to transfer the files you extracted from the WordPress.zip download.
At this point things might get a little tricky for the novice, but I have trust in you so pay close attention and we’ll allow you to get through the next step. In the control panel on your online host is a connect to MySQL Databases. WordPress is made on a SQL database – every post, title, comment, category and tag is stored in to a record in this database and that text is dynamically called upon via php code to render the blog (don’t worry if that didn’t make much sense, sometimes I get carried away). So so you are within the MySQL section of one’s control panel on your online host – now it’s time to create a database. You will have to remember the name of the database, the username and the password. This information will soon be necessary in the next step of the process.
It’s time and energy to jump back again to your FTP client and edit the wp-config-sample.php file. The first step will soon be renaming the file by right-clicking /rename, followed closely by right clicking and choosing edit. This should open a text editor (notepad is our favorite) and permit you to change the fields. If you should be confused about the fields, WordPress.org has assembled this handy guide here. The final part of creating WordPress for your tech blog is merely planning to the install page that will be something like – make sure to replace “yourblogname” with the domain name you registered. In the event that you decided to install WordPress in another location like I mentioned above it will be – the “folder” would be the directory name you transferred the files to.

In the event that you realized this whole process is much more involved than you expected I suggest you reconsider my suggestion on using Bluehost. One-click WordPress installs and upgrades are a blessing.Read More
