Checklist for Testing and Configuring Word Press Installation
(Page 1 of 4 )
This is a tutorial on how to configure WordPress publishing software. It also details how to upload it to the hosting server using FTP. It is the second part of a two-part article that explains how to use GoDaddy hosting to set up a WordPress-based web site.
To give you a quick background, if you have correctly configured your web host, there will not be many problems during the installation process of WordPress.
As mentioned in the intro, this is part two of the tutorial series, therefore an explanation of server configuration is not included here. If you need details on how to configure your server to host WordPress, particularly in GoDaddy, read my previous article; there you will find technical details on this topic.
Requirements for Testing and Configuration
To maximize your understanding of, and benefits from, this article, you need to secure the following first:
A web host (that is fully compatible and already configured for WordPress).
The latest WordPress version, downloaded to your desktop (version 2.6.1 as of August 2008; there is a newer version available now) and unzipped.
Your selected WordPress Theme, unzipped.
An FTP program (for example, CoreFTP).
