Installing wordpress on our servers is definitely easy

Installing wordpress on our servers is deffinately easy.

You download the install components from the http://wordpress.org wordpress-site.

Here you get a compressed file (.tar.gz or .zip) which you have to extract..

You get a folder with files, those files (so no the folder) you copy via filezilla or an other ftp programme to your www-map on your shellaccount.

Afterwards you go to your account, I.E username.ulyssis.be, here you get a notification telling you your wp-config.php has to be created, the easiest way is to follow the wizard, so click on “Create a Configuration File”.

Afterwards on Let's go! which will prompt you for your database credentials:

  • Database Name: if you haven't created a mysql database or user on UCC then you have to create it there. The default database is: username_username.
  • 'User Name: this is the name you gave during the creation of your mysql account, often this is the same as your username with ULYSSIS.
  • Password: the password hat you gave during the creation of your mysql account
  • Database Host: this is mysql.ulyssis.org
  • You don't change the last field

When you're done click on “Run the install” Here you can give the last few details.

Afterwards the install will run by it own and thats it, you installed wordpress.

Setting up multiple instances of Wordpress

If you want to have multiple instances of a Wordpress site then you the create a new folder in your homedir from your shell account. Then you make a new virtual host for this directory in UCC.

Name: alias.username.ulyssis.be Document root: /home/user/username/new_folder

From now on you do al the same steps as for a regular wordpress installation.
