    Good morning Neil,

    Wordpress is so easy. You need some important steps to be followed. First you must have a PC with a local server(Apache, Vertrigo, LAMP, WAmp, MAMP) any of them. Then you have to create a database with any name like "Wordpress". Now final step is to open a browser and provide the link of your folder where you have placed your wordpress setup. Now your browser will ask you about all the requirements to configure. When you are done, You can enjoy your wordpress Website.

    Wordpress is a very adaptable script and these days is used for all manner of websites as it is very flexible in that you can update data quite easily as against a static website.

    It is ideal for a business ie post up-to-date information for clients, have a form for viewers to submit for a regular newsletter, display products for sale etc.

    Download the latest stable release
    WordPress is an open source software that is constantly being improved upon by members of the community. The development goes on in the background so that end users only get stable versions on live installs. The most recent, most stable version is always on the WordPress.org download page. You should always be running the most recent release to protect your site and never be afraid of updates!

    So head on over there and click the big blue button for the direct download of the zip file.

    Create a database and user
    You need to create your MySql database and username for the installation. The easiest way to do this is usually through your hostís cPanel, or hosting control center. Login to your account and look for a link called MySql, Databases, or something similar. There should be a guide similar to the pictures below that walk you through naming your database and creating a user.






    After you name your database appropriately, youíll also need to input a database host. Typically localhost is what you use, but not always. Some popular hosts use other names, and you can view them here, but certainly verify with your host the appropriate name.

    When you create the user, remember to choose a good long password with upper and lowercase letters and some numbers too. Remember both the database name and user information, because we will need it for the next step.

    Edit wp-config.php
    In our WordPress download from earlier, there is a file included called wp-config-sample.php. We need to edit that file and rename it to wp-config.php. So open up wp-sample-config.php in your text editor, and letís alter the following values.

    /** The name of the database for WordPress */
    define('DB_NAME', 'database_name_here');

    /** MySQL database username */
    define('DB_USER', 'username_here');

    /** MySQL database password */
    define('DB_PASSWORD', 'password_here');

    /** MySQL hostname */
    define('DB_HOST', 'localhost');
    Replace database_name_here with the database name you defined in the previous step, keeping the single quotes.
    Replace username_here with your database username you defined in the previous step, also keeping the single quotes.
    Replace password_here with your database password you defined in the previous step, also keeping the single quotes.
    localhost can stay the same unless your host uses a different name as described in the previous step.
    Next we need to set up our secret keys. There are eight lines in a row that say ďput your unique phrase hereĒ. These are security keys that were introduced in WordPress 2.6 and enhanced in WordPress 2.7. Note that this is extremely important, and you should not slack off from using a proper security key!

    WordPress has even made this task super easy for you with this secret key generator. Just go to the url and copy the code and replace the existing lines in your config file. This url randomizes the keys so they are unique every time the page is visited. Yes, they are supposed to be crazy long and full of weird stuff.

    Once you finish with the edits, be sure to rename or copy this file as wp-config.php. If you donít do this WordPress wonít think you did anything at all.

    If you want to read all of the nitty gritty details of editing wp-config, check out the WordPress Codex page about it.

    Itís time to upload our files!
    Alright, pull up your FTP client and login. After you login, find the directory you want to load WordPress. If you want WordPress to be on the homepage of your site (which I recommend) it needs to go in the root folder. Depending on your host, the root folder may actually have its own place in your FTP connection. If you donít put your files in the root, visitors will have to go to http://yourdomain.com/whatever-folder-you-want to see your WordPress site.

    When you upload your files, you donít upload the entire WordPress folder, but rather open the WordPress folder and upload each file and folder into the root or subdirectory depending on where you are installing it.

    Run the install script
    Letís visit your new WordPress site! Go to http://yourdomain.com/wp-admin/install.php. If you didnít upload WordPress in the root folder, then you need to insert that folder name, such as http://yourdomain.com/whatever-folde...in/install.php.

    Now you will be greeted with the WordPress setup page. You need to input your site title, the admin username (I recommend NOT using admin!), a strong password (you can use the same one as you used for the database if it makes it easier), and your email that will be used for notification purposes. You can also choose whether you want your site to be indexed by search engines, which if the site is not for private purposes, you want to leave that checked.

    Click ďInstall WordPressĒ and you should be done! You can visit your url where you installed it to check and see how it looks. Congratulations! Youíve successfully installed WordPress and it is time to make it awesome!

    One of the easier way is visit youtube tutorial, when I was new to wordpress, text documentation is hard for me to setup refer. In addition, user problem is not limit to wordpress it self, but also setup SQL in Cpanel.

    Hey there,

    Not only is WordPress easy to use as you get the hang of it a bit, it's a very nice platform for many different kinds of websites, from small business to a personal site.

    There are many themes available (free and premium) that will give your website a wonderful look-and-feel to enhance your visitor's experience while visiting your site.

    The easiest way to get WordPress setup (other than video tutorials, which can be great and there are some good ones on YouTube if you look around here and there) is to register your domain and buy hosting.

    After that, simply:

    (1) Point your domain name to your hosting account's servers. This isn't that hard but a video will be easier to follow.
    (2) Add the domain to your hosting account
    (3) Inside your hosting account Control Panel you'll want to find what's called 'Fantastico', usually at the bottom if you scroll down the page. Click that.
    (4) On the left-hand side you'll see, under Blogs, 'WordPress'. Click there.
    (5) On the page that comes up click on new instillation and make sure you select the domain you want, fill in your username and password and then click on Install.

    When all is done, you can log out and visit yoursite.com/wp-admin and fill in the username and password you've just created.

    Now you're logged in and ready to go.

    Does this help?

    WordPress forums and documentation is good enough to learn how to set up wordpress website manually, yet there is alternative ways to set your WordPress website in minutes, nowadays hosting providers offer wordpress or any kind of CMS (content management system) auto installer, where you can actually install it with 1 click.
