What do you know about the wordpress? You know that it is a system of site administration, with the help of which blogging is possible. What else? By the way, do you have your own blog? If you have one, probably you know how easy it is installed! And if you have none then you are going to get to know about it!

Even the creators wrote that it will take only 5 minutes to install wordpress blog. Besides, I decided to place the installation instruction in this item so you needn’t look for it! Here it is:

Download and unzip the WordPress package, if you haven’t already.
Create a database for WordPress on your web server, as well as a MySQL user who has all privileges for accessing and modifying it.
Rename the wp-config-sample.php file to wp-config.php.
Open wp-config.php in a text editor and fill in your database details as explained in Editing wp-config.php to generate and use your secret key password.
Upload the WordPress files in the desired location on your web server:
If you want to integrate WordPress into the root of your domain (e.g. http://example.com/), move or upload all contents of the unzipped WordPress directory (but excluding the directory itself) into the root directory of your web server.
If you want to have your WordPress installation in its own subdirectory on your web site (e.g. http://example.com/blog/), rename the directory wordpress to the name you’d like the subdirectory to have and move or upload it to your web server. For example if you want the WordPress installation in a subdirectory called “blog”, you should rename the directory called “wordpress” to “blog” and upload it to the root directory of your web server.

Awesome indeed! You have your own blog only in 5 minutes! But that is not all, so don’t be in a hurry to close the browser window! Now we need to investigate the settings and outward of the wordpress blog! Let’s begin with the settings!
Pressing knob “settings” at the control board (to get to the control board you should write “wp-admin” before the name of your site. For example http:\\site.com\wp-admin\) you can see the great number of additional insets, every of which accounts for blog’s settings domain! On the whole, there is nothing special in these insets, but anyway I would like to pay your attention to some points! Firstly, during the installation of the new plugin in the section of blog settings the point of its characteristic can appear so don’t be afraid. Secondly, besides blog, you may use the wordpress as a real site! If you want to do it- click on the inset “Reading” and choose any statistical page of your site as a home page! And then if you go to the home page of your site, you would see a statistical page instead of blog items. By the way, after the wordpress installation it is necessary to check all the settings and to choose the most appropriate ones without fail!

And now I think we can proceed to the most interesting – to the choice and installation of the wordpress theme! I won’t speak too much about the choice of the wordpress theme because the choice is yours! In the Internet you can download free themes and also you can buy them! You can buy wordpress themes at themeforest.net and at many others! And if it is difficult for you to make a choice then there are many reviews of different themes. Here are several references for example! Besides, there is one more important point, it is an availability of the control board which can essentially help you with the theme settings! And now lets turn to the wordpress theme installation! It is very easy. There are two ways of the theme installation. The first one is to use the inset “appearance” at the control board of the wordpress! You should press “install theme”, find the theme with the help of keywords and install it! But if you have bought the theme or downloaded it then the first way won’t do. And then you have to install the theme by hand! Usually the theme which was bought or installed theme is an archives which contains several files. We need a folder with the theme itself. It usually has the same title as the theme. Did you find it? Now we need to dispatch this folder to the server! You can use any FTP client or even browser for this purpose! For the access to the FTP you must know such information as the server address, login and password! The hosting, where you install your site, will give you such information! So, I think that if you read the information up to here then you know what the matter concerns because you’ve managed to install the wordpress (about it’s installation I told you at the beginning of this item)! Let’s return to the our wordpress theme! It’s necessary to copy folder with the theme to the server with the following address: \wp-content\themes\

If you succeeded and all the files were copied to the server then we go again to the control board of our blog, to the “appearance” section. Our copied theme is already there. The only thing that we should do is to press the knob “activate”! It’s so easy, isn’t it?

That’s all actually! I hope you enjoyed this item! Do you have any questions? Ask them in the comments! Write your comments! We appreciate your opinion!
