Step One—Download WordPress:

  •  Download the latest stable release(wordpress-4.1.1.zip) of WordPress from the official site. Unzip/extract it to an appropriate location.
  • Copy paste the extracted “wordpress” directory to /var/www.2
  •  Turn on the Apache server and try accessing the URL:http://localhost/wordpress/wp-admin/setup-config.php

    Step Two—Create the WordPress Database and User:
  •  We would realize that before proceeding with the installation, we would need to create a database, a database user and grant him/her all privileges for that database.

    a) Connect to MySQL as root:  mysql -h localhost -u root -ppassword
    b) Create a database for WordPress:      CREATE DATABASE wpbase;
    c) Create user: CREATE USER ‘wp-admin_rubiamk’@’localhost’ IDENTIFIED BY ‘d$7hF_r!9Y’;
    d) Grant all privileges to user: GRANT ALL ON wpbase.* TO ‘wp-admin_rubiamk’@’localhost’ IDENTIFIED BY ‘d$7hF_r!9Y’;


    Step Three—Setup the WordPress Configuration:

  • Browse to the wordpress directory and copy the sample WordPress configuration file into a new file which we will edit, creating a new usable wordpress config.

    cp wp-config-sample.php wp-config.php

  • Open wp-config.php and setup the database, username and password there.22

    Step Five—Run WordPress Installation

  •  Provide Site Title, Username, Password, E-mail and click “Install WordPress“.2
