How Do I Install WordPress On My Server?

If you’ve decided that you want to host your own WordPress site, then the next step is to figure out how to install it on your server. As we discussed above, WordPress is quite easy to use and set up, so this shouldn’t pose any problems for you. You can either download a readymade WordPress dump from or you can install the WordPress software directly from the ZIP file you downloaded.

The first step in the installation process is to create a MySQL database for WordPress to use. You can do this by opening a PHPMyAdmin interface to your server and creating a new database with the appropriate name. To ensure that the database is password-protected, you should add a password for the root user (www-data by default), so now you should have a database with a password on your server.

The next step is to download the WordPress software and import the database into the WordPress application. To do this, you’ll need to use the PHPMyAdmin interface again, but this time you’ll import the database, not create a new one. The last step is to test out the site to confirm that it’s working properly and then create a login for an administrator so they can access the backend of WordPress.

How Do I Configure WordPress For SSL?

If you read our blog post about SEO and search engine optimization (SEO) for bloggers, you’ll know that we mentioned that WordPress is very user-friendly when it comes to setting up an SSL site. This is because WordPress comes with an SSL (Secure Socket Layer) plugin that was created by the folks over at WordFence.

If you decide to use SSL for your WordPress site, then you should make sure to install the WordFence SSL plugin as soon as you’ve installed WordPress. This will give you the ability to configure your site with a login page that automatically redirects to your https:// site. Once again, this is very handy for individuals or businesses that want to conduct transactions over the web (via credit cards or PayPal etc.).

The best part about this plugin is that it comes with examples of login pages that you can copy and paste to get started with your SSL site. So, let’s say you want to create a blog around luxury goods. You can browse through the example websites provided by WordFence and choose one of the luxurious brands to focus on. Then, you can edit the details relevant to your own site, like the logo, heading and so on. Once you’re done, simply go to Settings → General and click on the Save button to save your settings.

What’s The Recommended WordPress Version To Use?

Once you’ve set up a WordPress account, you’ll see a dashboard with your site’s name displayed on it. Underneath that, you’ll see a section that’s labeled “Version Control”. This is where you can check out the versions of WordPress available for you to download. You can download and install the latest stable version of WordPress or you can choose from a number of different stable versions, ranging from 2.9 to 4.7 (the latest being 4.7). You can even choose an unstable version, which allows you to try out new features and bug fixes before they’re officially released.

We would recommend using an unstable version of WordPress to try out new features and see how the CMS evolves over time. That way, you’ll be sure to stay ahead of the competition.

How Do I Manage My WordPress Dashboard?

The dashboard of your WordPress site is where you’ll find all the essential information about your site, like the name of your blog, your site’s URL, and the about page for your site. To manage your dashboard, you can either click on the Settings icon on the upper right of the dashboard (next to your profile picture) or you can click on the gear icon in the upper left of the dashboard. From there, you can choose to show or hide different site elements, like comments, plugins, and so on.

WordPress offers a variety of short-cuts and buttons that you can use to manage various aspects of your site. For instance, if you want to enable comment moderation, then all you have to do is click on the “Settings” tab on your dashboard and then click on “comments” to get started. Once you’ve enabled comments, you can click on the “+ New Comment” button near the bottom of any blog post to start the moderation process, where you can decide what type of content you want to allow (or disallow) on your site.
