A recent WordPress package should be available on the server. To install, run the
install.sh script in /var/www/wordpress, from the ~/www/ directory of your choice:
$ cd ~/www/example.com $ sh /var/www/wordpress/install.sh myblog
WordPress uses MySQL as its database backend so before proceeding further, you need to create a database and a MySQL user. You can do this from the Databases section of the Control Panel, or alternatively from the Shell Interface:
csoftadm> db mysql add myblog csoftadm> db mysql useradd mybloguser csoftadm> db mysql grant myblog mybloguser all
If you wish to reuse the contents of a previous WordPress installation, assuming mydump.txt was previously generated by
mysqldump, you would use:
$ cat mydump.txt | mysql -u mybloguser -p myblog
Open the file wp-config.php in the WordPress installation directory in a text editor, and edit the "MySQL settings" section:
// ** MySQL settings ** // define('DB_NAME', 'myblog'); define('DB_USER', 'mybloguser'); define('DB_PASSWORD', 'secret'); define('DB_HOST', 'localhost');
Set arbitrary phrases in
LOGGED_IN_KEY. If you require internationalization, set the
WPLANG value accordingly.
Point your browser to the new URL (
https://example.com/myblog) and enter the requested information (blog title and e-mail address). Proceed, and note the generated password.
The installation is now complete. You can now log in as
admin. For better security, consider using a secure URL (
https:// URL). If you don't have an official SSL certificate, it is possible to generate one yourself.
