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.
Then create a folder and named it wordpress or weblog whatever under c:\appserv\www. Unzip the file which you download from wordpress site, into that folder. WordPress folder contains wp-admin, wp-content, wp-includes and many other php files.
Creating database for wordpress
Type the address http://localhost/phpmyadmin/ in browser. You’ll see phpMyAdmin database administration panel.
Create a database name “wordpress” or whatever. This database will be used in WordPress installation.
Now it’s time to install wordpress, type http://localhost/wordpress in your browser.
You’ll see wordpress installation page. Click ‘create a wp-config.php file through a web interface‘.
Click Let’s go
Click ‘run the install‘
Click ‘First Step‘
Click Continue to Second Step
This is a final state of wordpress installation. WordPress installation will give you a username and it’ password. Mark it down!!!
Now, you can login to your very first wordpress blog. Click wp-login.php. Next time, use this address. http://localhost/[wordpress folder]/wp-login.php
