Learn WordPress Series: Installing WordPress

Installing WordPress these days is fairly simple.  Most hosts that offer managed hosting have a “1-click install” or Auto-installer making it very easy to start using the WordPress software to build your own website.  This will also allow you to have more flexibility with features, plugins and third-party themes as opposed to WordPress.com, a free-hosting service.  We talked about WordPress.com in the first post of this Learn WordPress series, Getting to know WordPress.  Below are videos found on YouTube that different web designers have created, showing you the process of installing WordPress with numerous web hosts.

As you can see from the length of these videos that installing WordPress overall is not a hard task.  That is what makes this software so popular to date.  Later in this series you will learn how to create pages, menus, install themes and more.  If you want to get a head start at learning the WordPress software, start a WordPress.com blog and create a few posts.  You can learn how to do so in the Learn WordPress: Creating Posts article.  You could also read Chapter 3 of the book WordPress: The Missing Manual, 2nd Edition.
