WordPress from scratch : Part 1

Posted on

Welcome to part one of my 'WordPress from scratch' series! This first part covers downloading and installing a localhost called MAMP, downloading WordPress and setting up a database for it and finally, installing WordPress itself. This time around I'll be doing screen-casts as opposed to saying do this do that, so you should be able to follow me on screen. It would be great to get some feedback on how you think I presented this as well as general feedback from the video, so please leave any comments.

    Hi, could you say an alternative for windows version?

    • Nouveller wrote on

      Alternative for the programs, I did mention WAMP instead of MAMP and you could use Dreamweaver or Notepad ++ instead of Coda.

    Thank the gods for your presentation on this! I finally understood lots of the WordPress setup, and Coda as well. I’ve been struggling for some time, but you’re the first person who’s made me comprehend.

    Thanks so much for those four WordPress tutorial videos. I was looking for that. Very useful, clear and concise. Good work.

    I do accept as true with all the concepts you have presented on your post. They are very convincing and will certainly work. Nonetheless, the posts are too brief for starters. May you please extend them a little from subsequent time? Thanks for the post.
