WordPress impresses

Hype generally falls short of reality. This isn’t true of WordPress, however. The creators of this nifty piece of software claim you can install it in five minutes. Barring operator error, this is actually true.

I had my worries about installing WordPress since it requires a MySQL database and PHP and I had no experience with either. Fortunately, the process is straightforward if you follow the instructions given.

The installation was made a lot smoother because my host has cPanel X and the WordPress FAQ has simple instructions for creating a database using that front-end.

I did have a couple of problems defining the database connection in the wp-config.php file but those problems were very much of my own making. (Hint: Avoid installing WordPress at 4 in the morning because silly errors abound.)
