Wordpress installation


Recommended Posts

I am working my way through the Dreamweaver and Wordpress videos. I have installed wamp, created a database and am up to setting up the database connection. I can't get past the step where I need to enter database name, username, password, database host, table prefix.Do I need to set up a testing server in dreamweaver before I can install wordpress?or...Do I need to sign up with a hosting service before I can complete this step?

Do I need to set up a testing server in dreamweaver before I can install wordpress?

No, that is only required if you want to preview files within Dreamweaver (which you could easily do inside a regular browser instead.)

 

Hosting services are not required, unless you need the site to be visible online.

Fill the form this way:

 

Database name: mydb (something short that ends with db for database so you remember).

Database username: root (says your MySQL username)

Database password: (leave blank) (says your MySQL password)

Database host table prefix: wp-

 

Tip: Open notepad and use it to keep track of names and steps.
