Installing WordPress 2014

As I am teaching this module, I thought I better check that all the instructions work and what better way to do that than set up a blog!

Installation as follows:
Downloaded using Firefox 31.0 on a PC running Windows 7 Home Premium. I downloaded the wordpress-4.0.tar.gz

Using vpn to aber.ac.uk and mapping my ‘M:\’ drive I copied the download into my ‘public_html’ folder and unzipped it there.

I then followed all the instructions using ‘putty’ and found I needed to get php permissions.

Following this, all was well.
