It is really important that you should change your password immediately when you logged in your wordpress panel for this first time after fresh installation of your WordPress. To change your password, click admin link next to “Howdy” text message in upper right corner of your WordPress panel Or type yourblogaddress.com/wp-admin/profile.php in browser address bar.
You can change Color scheme of your admin panel, First name, Last name, Nickname, Display name which is used for author name is blog post, contact information, etc in Profile section. This is a WordPress newbie series. I will keep posting like this tutorial in future.
After successful logged in your wordpress, you’ll see the wordpress dashboard. WordPress Dashboard includes Write, Manage, Design and Comments panel.
Write panel where you can write new post, page and link (blogroll).
Manage panel where you can manage posts, pages, categories, Tags, Media, Importing posts from wordpress xml file or other blogging system.
Design panel where you can change or edit your themes uploaded in your server under wp-content/themes folder.
Comments panel where you can handle all the comments such as deleting, editing and marking comments as spam for your posts.
The rest are Setting, Plugins and Users. WordPress dashboard displays all the information like Recent comments, Incoming link, News feed from WordPress Development blog, popular plugins from WordPress plugin directory and other wordpress news.
In my last post, I explained how to install Apache, php and mysql on windows using Appserv. Now I’ll explain how to install wordpress.
First, download the zip from wordpress Download page. http://www.wordpress.org/download/
Installing Apache Web Server, php and MySQL individually on Windows is not easy task. Because it might takes long time time to make so many configurations to work well such as editing in .ini setting, httpd.conf and many services and extensions used by Apache, php and MySql.
