WordPress is a Content Management System (CMS) spcialized in blog area, logs, blocks, journals (posts) personal.

We will install WordPress over Debian Etch, with Apache2+PHP5+MySQL.

  • Unzip and move to server root the WP directory:

  • Allow writting the web server daemon user in the web root:

    a new spin on a topic that has been written about
    for years. Great stuff, just great!
