Tips and tricks on developing web sites

Installing WordPress Files

Go to WordPress.org and download the latest version of WordPress. It is worth noting that WordPress.org and WordPress.com are not the same things. Since we are using Windows we want a zipped archive rather than .tar.gz. Right-click on the WordPress download and choose to Extract all and uncompress the folder to htdocs. After it is uncompressed rename the wordpress folder it created to public_html if this is your primary site or if and add-on it would be example.com.
