WordPress 2.5 – Installation

So I took the challenge and downloaded the 2.5 RC1. I installed this in my sandbox and got aome awesome results. We’re going to take a focus on this – each week we will talk about the setup and how to integrate it into an existing blog.

Part I – Installation.

This was by far the easiest WordPress to . I didn’t have to worry about knowing anything except how to create a Database in MySQL. I gave the Database a name and that was it. I copied the files over and went to http:/localhost/geekazine2_5

The first window was the best part. I was pretty much greeted by WordPress. It said I don’t have the geek_config file ready, but just the button and BAM!

I was then pretty much shuffled through a series of screens to set up the database.  

2nd Window

This is where setting up the Database comes in handy. I put the database info below (sorry, can’t show THAT info). 

Notice the last line of the setup. It asks you to give your tables a name structure. This is so it can run more than one WordPress Blog in the database. Pretty cool stuff…

And Voila! That was it.

Now it’s time to set up the main account.
