While contemplating ways to turn my 7 month old niece into the world’s youngest professional blogger, I knew the first step in the process would be to set her up with a WordPress blog.
This task has given me the opportunity to update my previous WordPress installation video, which was using WordPress 1.5. Though the process of installation hasn’t truly changed, this updated video will look more up to date because of the WordPress 2.2 admin panel.
In this version, I’ve skipped the database creation step because I’ve already done a MySQL tutorial (for cPanel users). This WordPress installation video jumps right into downloading the WordPress software, un-zipping it, uploading it (I’m still using FileZilla), and installing it.
Flash player is required to view the video. If you don’t have it, you can snag a free copy from the Adobe website. And the same caveats apply:
- You are on PC (however, Mac users can still get the idea)
- You are brand new to WordPress (this is basic info)
- You understand how to use your FTP program
(You can still view the legacy WordPress 1.5 installation video if you like. It goes through the entire process from start to finish, including creating a database.)
