WordPress Installation

Unread post by FdT81 » Sat Jan 14, 2017 11:04 pm

Hi,

Could anyone guide me on how to install Wordpress/Joomla?
The guide below is out of date, e.g. there is no mysql pop up but instead a database account and password and a user pop up. And I am not sure what to fill in there? Installation is unsuccessful due to account /password error?

I've just experienced this too and you are probably making the same mistake as me. The password for the SQL database is blank with user name root. Choose a suitable password when asked for the wordpress_user database and all should then be okay.

Also keep in mind if you change the default password from the MariaDB, and then try to install wordpress you must use the new password. Took me awhile to figure that one out. Here is a generic link that had that answer. http://atherbeg.com/2015/01/20/how-to-i ... ology-box/

I'm also a newbie. I decided to build my website with Wordpress using one of its themes from https://www.templatemonster.com/categor ... templates/ and I hope I've made the right choice :) . But I've faced the same problems with the installation of Wordpress. I'm glad that I've found this thread as it has helped me a lot. Thanks for sharing your experience!
