Need help? Check out our Support site, then


wordpress setup

  1. I have a website that is very basic, and frankly, outdated. I want to use wordpress to redo it. A few questions about wordpress. Can I download it free? My webhost (powweb.com) says they support wordpress but they won't be able to explain how I set it up. Where can I learn setup and how to publish to my website with wordpress? Thanks!

    The blog I need help with is goodear.wordpress.com.

  2. You missed http://en.forums.wordpress.com/topic/7-things-to-know-before-posting-in-wordpresscom-forums?replies=1 - and did not read it as suggested.

    this site is for support of sites hosted on WordPress.COM. You should address your questions to WordPress.ORG the keepers of the software you are using: http://wordpress.org/support/

    For more on the difference: http://support.wordpress.com/com-vs-org/

  3. If you are installing on your webhost, then you need to head over to http://wordpress.ORG/support/ as that is where the self-hosted version of wordpress in supported. There is a "famous five minute install" that is easy to follow and will have you up and running in no time. Also check with your webhost and see if they happen to have an installer script for wordpress such as Fantastico. Many do and that is even easier requiring only that you answer a few questions and the script installs and configures everything for you.
