• Get some decent web hosting sorted out. As WordPress is a PHP script you’ll want to find some hosting that is capable. These are the WordPress server requirements for Version 2.9: • PHP version 4.3 or greater • MySQL version 4.1.2 or greater • (Optional) Apache mod_rewrite module (for clean URIs known as Permalinks) • Two of the most recommended Hosting companies are Bluehost and Hostgator. Either of the two are good enough for running WordPress. • Once you’ve signed up and have an account you can Log into your cPanel by going to http://yourdomain.com/cpanel. • Click the Simple Scripts feature (or, alternatively, the Fantastico feature). The Fantastico script is very easy to use and you can install WordPress in a matter of minutes. • You can also do a manual installation and although a bit trickier for first timers you’ll soon get the hang of it. You’ll need an FTP client such as Filezilla to upload the WordPress files to your server – to the public_html folder or your home folder. T
