Blogging and Podcasting are one of the most popular activities on the web these days and WordPress is one of the most popular web applications that allows you to do this. Installing WordPress at MyWinHosting.com is relatively easy by following these instructions.
First, download the most recent WordPress installation files from http://wordpress.org/
using the ZIP download, and uncompress those files onto your local drive.
Next, you will need to create a MySQL database. To do this, log into your control panel and follow the instructions at Creating a MySQL Database
to create your database. Remember the name of the database, the username, password, and the server the database is installed on. You'll need that next.
Next, find the file named wp-config-sample.php and rename it to wp-config.php. Then open the file in a text editor, notepad is fine, and fill in the database values. Keep in mind that the database server is named mysqlN
.mywinhosting.com, where N is a number.
Next, FTP the wordpress files up to your domain directory.
Once the files have been uploaded, run the wp-admin/install.php file from your web browser. If you installed WordPress in the root of your domain and your domain name was called www.yourdomain.com, you would access the install using http://www.yourdomain.com/wp-admin/install.php and run the two step wizard. Be very sure to record the administrator username and password that WordPress creates for you during this process.
