One reason behind WordPress popularity may be the low program requirements had a need to run this CMS about a web server:
- PHP version 5.2.4 or greater.
- MySQL edition 5.0.15 or greater or any version of MariaDB.
You would probably need to visit a hosting provider that has WordPress support, such as Virtono. On our shared hosting servers, we have auto-installers to help make the WordPress set up process as easy as possible.
Through the use of auto-installers, users no more suffer from database creation or document uploading.
In this component of our WordPress tutorial, become familiar with two different ways to set up WordPress.
Before proceeding with WordPress installation, you have to decide on how you would like to access your site. Would you like WordPress on your own domain name root (example.com), subfolder (example.com/blog), or subdomain name (blog page.example.com)? Only when you want to set up WordPress on a subdomain name, you will need to take yet another step and produce a subdomain name. On Virtono this is often easily carried out in the Subdomains section.
You can follow along with the Video or Use the Steps written below it.
