Installing WordPress

I just installed WordPress and it looks promising so far.

Since apache2 was already installed, I just needed to do a few easy steps:

# apt-get install mysql-server-5.1 php5-mysql
# /etc/init.d/apache2 restart

Manually add a database and database user to mysql. I use KMySQLadmin for this task.

After that, point your browser to http://yoursite/wordpress/ and follow one or two easy steps. It’s really that simple! 🙂

I find the admin GUI to be a lot easier to understand than for instance b2evolution, which I tried at the same time.
